Santa Rosa, CA. ~ Redwood Credit Union (RCU) is accepting donations to assist those impact- ed by the North Bay fi res. Any- one can make a secure donation online at northbayfi rerelief or at any of RCU’s North Bay and San Fran- cisco locations. RCU’s North Bay Fire Relief Fund has been established by RCU Community Fund, in part- nership with Redwood Credit Union, Senator Mike McGuire, and The Press Democrat. RCU is paying all administrative costs, so 100% of your tax deductible donations will aid fi re victims and relief efforts. Donors can choose to designate their sup- port to all four counties impact- ed (Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino or Lake), or they can choose to support an individual impacted county.

Contributions to the fund may be made securely online via credit card or checks can be dropped off and made payable to the RCU Community Fund (with “2017 North Bay Fire Re- lief” in memo line along with a note of “All” or the designated affected county the donation will support). Checks may also be mailed to RCU Community Fund, P.O. Box 6104, Santa Rosa, CA 95406. “Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the fi res,” said Brett Martinez, RCU’s president and CEO. “We’re

their fi nancial needs. We’re also accepting fi nancial donations for the fi re relief efforts and victims of these devastating fi res.” Companies have expressed

interest in supporting the North Bay Fire Relief Fund. There are two levels of partnership for those interested in donating at a corporate partnership level: • The Corporate Leader: Com- pany donation of $200,000 or greater, and commitment


raising funds for the fi re relief through your business. • The Community Supporter: Company donation between $100,000-$199,000 and commit- ment to raising funds for fi re re- lief through your business
