The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is accepting donations to help farmers and ranchers affected by late winter storms that brought high amounts of snow and rainfall, causing widespread flooding in Nebraska and neighboring states.
“Our hearts go out to our northern neighbors who have had their lives upended and their livelihoods threatened by these incredible storms and disastrous flooding,” said David VonTungeln, OKFB Foundation for Agriculture president. “Even in these times of tragedy, we have witnessed farmers and ranchers going to extreme lengths to care for their animals and help their communities, and we at the foundation want to do our part to help provide relief on their long road to recovery.”
All storm relief donations collected by the foundation will be used to assist those who have been impacted by the springtime storms and floods.
To donate, mail checks to the OKFB Foundation for Agriculture, 2501 N. Stiles, Oklahoma City, OK 73105. The foundation can also accept donations via PayPal on the foundation’s website at OKFBFoundationForAgriculture.org/donate. Please designate donations are for springtime storm relief.
