CHICO, Calif. - The Salvation Army of Chico and the North Valley Community Foundation have stepped up to help those dealing with PG&E power shutoff.

The Chico Corps Community Center will open a 'Power Outage Café' as needed to provide outlets for people to charge their devices, The Salvation Army of Chico said. They will have WiFi, games, movies, and snacks provided.

"Power outages could last days in some areas with dry conditions and high winds," The Salvation Army of Chico said in a press release. "Many families do not have the means to keep their households running without power for that amount of time. The Salvation Army recognized the need in the community and reached out to the North Valley Community Foundation for help. The foundation graciously stepped up to fund the “Power Outage Café” to assist families during this difficult time."

The “Power Outage Café” is open to PG&E customers who lost power due to the Public Safety Power Shutoffs.

To gain entry, customers must show their I.D. and proof of address, such as a PG&E utility bill.

Location: The Salvation Army Chico Corps Community Center, 567 E. 16th Street, Chico.

The 'Power Outage Cafe' will open the following times below

  • Thursday, Oct. 10 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Friday, Oct. 11 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
