Community members gathered in the Chico Downtown Plaza to share what they are grateful for, Thursday.

The event was initiated by the Torres Community Shelter as a way of spreading more positivity in the community.

Gratitude Wins was an event with the purpose and goal of bringing the community together to share gratefulness.

“The goal is for everyone to have one day where they can appreciate everything good in their lives,” said Valerie Reddeman, a member of the committee.
