Local photographers are helping a nationwide charity formed to pay for operations to fix the smiles of children with cleft lips.
Penny Heath and Aaron Hall of Heath Photography are participating in "Operation Smile," a program supported by the Professional Photographers of America.
The photographers will be set up at the Salmon Run Mall in Watertown April 14 to take photos of people for a $24 donation. In return, people receive a desk-size portrait of themselves.
They'll be set up from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the mall's center court. People who are having their pictures taken are asked to wear black.
The photographers say it only take 10 donations to pay for one operation.
