On Saturday, December 7, photographers from Butte County and around the world will gather for the annual "Help-Portrait" event. They will provide free professional portraits to those in need.
Since 2009 the program has resulted in 282,295 "gifted" portraits in 62 countries, thanks to thousands of volunteers.
The event takes place in Chico from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. at The Jesus Center at 1297 Park Avenue. Santa will even be there from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Help-Portrait Chico has partnered with Doug Churchill Photography and Greg Arens Photography as well a The Jesus Center and Marinello Beauty Schools to make it all possible.
The hope is to provide a portrait to more than 150 individuals and families. For more information call (530) 345-2640 or visit Facebook.com/HelpPortraitChico
