Giving Back

Having been a local, small business in the Ridge Meadows community for 35 years and now the Tri-Cities, Photo Expressions is happy to give back in many ways:

School and Sports – More than $100k per year given back!

Created By Kids Art FundraiserThrough school and sport portrait rebates, and fundraisers such as the Created By Kids art fundraiser and Family Photo Fundraiser, and school yearbooks, Photo Expressions helps local schools and sports associations to raise well over $100,000 in funds every year!

In addition to these fundraisers, Photo Expressions is happy to partner with local schools, sports and community associations fundraisers through donations of free photofinishing, studio portraits and more.

Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation

Ridge Meadows Hosiptal FoundationTwo things everyone in our community needs from time to time – photos, and the local hospital.  That’s why Photo Expressions loves to partner with the Ridge Meadows Hospital Foundation (RMHF) whenever possible.

Each year, $1 from every entry in our Cutest Kid Photo Contest (now running for over 25 years) goes to the maternity ward at Ridge Meadows Hospital – which not coincidentally, is where manyof our contestants were born!

Photo Expressions is also happy to provide free portraiture for the well-dressed attendees, as well as photo coverage, of the annual RMHF Gala, an event that raises more than $200,000 each year for the hospital!


Terry Fox Foundation

Each fall, Photo Expressions runs a monthly special, load up your 8×10 prints.  $1 from every 8×10 print that month goes to the Terry Fox Foundation!  The Photo Expressions staff all have stories of how cancer has affected us, as we are sure you do too.


Help-Portrait

Help Portrait Maple RidgeSince 2011, the first year that Help-Portrait came to Ridge Meadows, Photo Expressions has donated our photographers, professional photo gear and printing to this amazing event.  Thousands of people who could not usually afford professional portraits have had beautiful, professional portraits gifted to them, right around Christmas time.  You can volunteer too through this website!
