March 14, 2011 |  2:04 pm

The Dodgers and KNBC-TV, Channel 4 have scheduled a drive-through relief effort at Dodger Stadium Tuesday to help raise money for the American Red Cross' Japan earthquake and tsunami aid fund.

Former Dodgers and members of the KNBC news team are scheduled to accept donations from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m. at parking lot No.1. It is accessible through Sunset Gate 1 at 1000 Elysian Park Ave.

[Update:] Former Dodgers Bobby Castillo, Kenny Landreaux, Rudy Law, Al Ferrara, Jimmy Campanis and Derrel Thomas, along with members of the KNBC news team will be accepting donations.

Cash and check donations will be accepted. Checks should be made out to the American Red Cross, with "Japan Tsunami Fund" written in the memo line.

The drive-through fundraising effort is also being supported by Clear Channel Radio.

Those unable to make it to the stadium have several other ways to make donations.

Donations with a credit card can be made to the Red Cross online. With their cellphones, people can also text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 contribution.
