They joined a non-profit program called Shoulder to Shoulder Pittsburg where a playground was built for the children.

Oltmer & Bergmann's photographs depict Honduran children dressed in clothing donated from Americans from Shoulder to Shoulder Pittsburgh. 

The exhibit will be on display at the CEPA Gallery through Saturday, March 28 at 617 Main Street in Buffalo.
