Once again, local photographer Jon Secord has committed to contribute 25% of his photography sales from now through December 15th to Genesis Behavioral Health (Genesis) of Laconia and Plymouth. Meredith Village Savings Bank (MVSB) has agreed to match his donation up to $5,000 to help support the efforts of Genesis Behavioral Health here in the Lakes Region.
Secord and MVSB partnered last year and Genesis benefited with a $2,000 donation they used provide winter clothing to children in need. This will be the third year Secord has rallied to support Genesis with the sales of his photography. “I’ve learned that even a small amount of money goes so far to help those in our community in need. I am excited to have the opportunity to partner again with such a strong community advocate like MVSB to provide support and have a positive impact again this year,” said Secord.
Those interested in purchasing photography to help support Genesis can order directly from www.jsecordphoto.com through December 15th. Secord specializes in New England landscape photography, especially the mountain, lakes and seacoast regions of the New Hampshire, and Hermit Island in Bath, Maine.
