Georgia Farm Bureau Establishes Hurricane Relief Fund

News / FBNews October 16, 2018

Hurricane Michael had a devastating impact on many farmers in south and central Georgia. From row crops, vegetables and tree nuts to farm equipment, chicken houses and buying points, Hurricane Michael wreaked havoc on agriculture. Within 24 hours, some Georgia farmers lost entire crops. Damage from Hurricane Michael wasn’t limited to just agriculture. All along the storm’s path, homes and automobiles were damaged or destroyed and people were left homeless. The effects will be felt for many years.

The Georgia Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture is accepting tax-deductible donations to aid in the relief effort following the devastation from Hurricane Michael. This fund will collect and distribute monetary contributions only. One hundred percent of the donations to this fund will be dispersed to Georgians, farmers and ranchers across the state who have been affected by the devastation.
