A Drive Up and Donate event will be held Friday afternoon in downtown Santa Rosa to raise money for victims of the North Bay fires.

Checks and cash donations to the North Bay Fire Relief Fund may be dropped off from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Rattigan State Building, located at 50 D Street.

The Press Democrat, Redwood Credit Union and state Sen. Mike McGuire have partnered to establish the North Bay Fire Relief Fund. One hundred percent of all donations will go directly to help victims of these devastating fires.

“We are facing an unprecedented disaster and we need to come together with an unprecedented outpouring of support for our family, friends and neighbors. Thousands have lost everything ­— but in our county’s greatest time of need, we come together to support those who need it most. We hope you can drive up and donate on Friday evening,” McGuire said in a statement.

Contributions may also be made online at www.redwoodcu.org/northbayfirerelief. They are also accepted at any Redwood Credit Union location or by mail. Please make checks payable to RCU Community Fund and include 2017 North Bay Fire Relief in the memo line along with a note on which county you’d like your donation to support (or you may note “All”). Mail to: P.O. Box 6104, Santa Rosa, CA 95406.
