CHICO, Calif. - The 9th Annual Help-Portrait Chico has been expanded to include Camp Fire Victims Dec. 8 and Dec. 9 at the Chico Mall.

Volunteer Professional Photographers will shoot portraits from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8, and from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 9, next to JC Penney and the Food Court. No appointment is necessary.

Help-Portrait Chico and Avalan Portrait Gallery are teaming up with the Chico Mall and Costco for this combined effort. They are offering free portraits and printed portrait packages to those displaced by the fire. 

Help-Portrait started as free portraits for homeless people, as part of a worldwide event. Between 2008 and 2017 nearly 382,000 portraits have been taken, printed and given at more than 3,000 events in 67 countries.

Organizers say this year, those who are photographed will have the chance to draw and write on a copy of their photos to tell their stories, providing an avenue for their voice to be heard.

They also say they could use more volunteers to help with the project.
