National Disaster Photo Rescue Directors will travel to Van, Aug. 3 through 5 to train individuals interested in preserving and returning photos displaced by the recent tornado.

Volunteers wanting to participate in the Aug. 4 NDPR training should register online by July 17 at www.nationaldisasterphotorescue.org or contact the on-site director Nancy Stelmach at 713-725-4470 for more information.

The workshop will be located at the Van Chamber of Commerce and there is no fee.

The National Disaster Photo Rescue organization (501c3) formed after the May 22, 2011 Joplin Missouri tornado and is a ministry of First Baptist Church, Carthage Mo. 

According to information from the organization, National Disaster Photo Rescue is dedicated to the preservation and return of lost photos after a disaster, thus building renewed strength and hope by reuniting communities with treasured memories thought to have been destroyed.
