In September of this year, Puerto Rico’s agricultural sector was devastated by Hurricane Maria. Official government estimates indicated the damage was as high as 80 percent of the island’s farm production, including field crops, plantains, bananas, papaya and coffee.

To help provide relief, a special Puerto Rico Agricultural Relief Fund has been established by Texas Farm Bureau’s Agriculture Research and Education Foundation. Tax-deductible donations are now being accepted to help farmers and ranchers on the island recover from the impact of Hurricane Maria.

This fund will collect and distribute monetary contributions only.

One hundred percent of the donations to this fund will be dispersed to aid farmers and ranchers in Puerto Rico.

Your tax-deductible credit card donation can be made online by clicking the link below:
