Joelle Watt, owner and operator of Joelle Watt Studios, DuBois, has developed a mentoring group called “CLICK.” Students are mentored by her to learn about photography, running a business, and giving back to the community. On Small Business Saturday, they did Santa Claus pictures at Brady Street Florist. All the members participated, and those coming for pictures were asked to bring canned good items for the food pantry. They took more than 70 kids’ pictures and raised much food for the pantry, which was later delivered to the pantry.
