FRESNO, California (KSEE/KGPE) — Three members of Fresno City Council are imploring the community to donate to a newly created GoFundMe campaign to help the families affected by Sunday’s mass shooting.

The three are also hosting a blood drive in front of Fresno City Hall in partnership with the Central California Blood Center. It runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

These efforts come before the City Council will discuss funding the Crime Stoppers reward in a special meeting Friday.

Soria has already provided Valley Crime Stoppers $5,000 to increase the reward to $15,000.
