The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is accepting donations to help Louisiana farmers and ranchers affected by Hurricane Laura.
Hurricane Laura is the strongest tropical system on record to make landfall in Louisiana since 1856. Its track northward across the state brought hurricane force winds through the state’s prime cattle, rice, sugarcane, corn, soybean, nursery and poultry growing areas.
Roads remain impassible. Homes are damaged or destroyed. Louisiana’s farmers and ranchers will feel the economic and psychological effects of this storm through this harvest season and beyond.
All storm relief donations collected by the OKFB foundation will be used to assist those who have been impacted by the hurricane. Donations will be added to the OKFB Foundation’s pledge of $2,500 and the OKFB Women’s Leadership Committee contribution of $1,000.
If you would like to make a donation, mail checks to the OKFB Foundation for Agriculture, 2501 N. Stiles Ave., Oklahoma City, OK 73105. The foundation also can accept donations via PayPal on the foundation’s website at OKFBFoundationForAgriculture.org/donate.
