Memory Mission Volunteers Return from School-Building Trip

EDEN PRAIRIE, MINN. – FEB. 25, 2015 – In late January, volunteers embarked on a Lifetouch Memory Mission® trip to help build a vocational school in the Dominican Republic. The school was built for the children in the impoverished, mountainous village of Constanza. Lifetouch, the leading provider of school and family photography, organized the trip and invited school administrators, principals, educators and members of the PTA from throughout North America to work alongside Lifetouch volunteers and Dominican nationals to build the school.

Additional information about the trip, including a newly released video recap and photographs, is available at www.lifetouchmemorymission.com.
