After offering no extreme weather accomodations last winter, the Salvation Army chapter in Grass Valley is opening doors for the first time this season. Office Manager Jason Winters says they’re open Tuesday and Wednesday from 4:30pm to 7am….

Winters says dinner will also be served, along with some toys that children can play with.

Overnight temperatures have to drop to a specific low to trigger the extreme protocol for that facility.
