Alabama Farmers Federation Announces Hurricane Relief Fund

News / FBNews October 17, 2018

The Alabama Farmers Federation has established a relief fund to help Alabama farmers recover from Hurricane Michael’s devastating effects. Tax-deductible donations may be made online by entering a custom amount or choosing from preset options. All funds collected through Nov. 30 will be targeted toward farmer losses not covered by a farmowner policy, crop insurance or disaster relief programs.

“Farmers in south Alabama have received an outpouring of support from neighbors and people across the country,” said Federation President Jimmy Parnell. “Many have asked where they can donate to help farmers who’ve lost their crops and barns, so we have created a special fund within the Alabama Farmers Agriculture Foundation to accept these gifts.” Learn more and donate at http://alabamafarmersfoundation.org/.
