Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund - How you can help

The full extent of the damage from Hurricane Harvey on the Texas Gulf Coast will not be known for days, but it’s clear, the damage is catastrophic. The National Corn Growers Association encourages those who want to help farmers and ranchers impacted by the hurricane, to visit the Texas Farm Bureau’s website.

 

The Texas Farm Bureau’s Agriculture Research and Education Foundation set up a Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund. One hundred percent of the donations to this fund will be dispersed to farmers and ranchers in counties that are designated disaster areas by the federal government.

 

Contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible. For more information on how to donate, visit the Texas Farm Bureau website.
