Oklahoma Agricultural Groups Rally in Support of Hurricane Harvey Victims to Solicite Donations

Fri, 08 Sep 2017 12:04:07 CDT

Oklahoma Agricultural Groups Rally in Support of Hurricane Harvey Victims to Solicite Donations The Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation is partnering with the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, American Farmers & Ranchers, Oklahoma Beef Council, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association, Oklahoma Pork Council, Oklahoma Wheat Commission and Oklahoma Wheat Growers Association to help fund relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. These agricultural advocacy groups are also collecting donations from members of the public that will directly benefit southeast Texas agricultural communities and local farming and ranching organizations.



“Oklahoma’s agricultural community always comes together during times of disaster,” said Jeramy Rich, Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation president. “Just as the Texas agricultural community supported us during the historic wildfires northwest Oklahomans experienced earlier this year, we hope to help our neighbors on their long road to recovery.”



Texas leads the nation in cattle and cotton production. About 1.2 million beef cows are in the 54 counties that have been declared disaster areas and estimates are expected to rise, according to Texas A&M livestock economists. This year’s cotton harvest was previously speculated to be one of the state’s most profitable, but harvest activity has been suspended due to catastrophic storm damage, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.



Members of the public are encouraged to mail donations in the form of checks made payable to the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation to 2501 N. Stiles, Oklahoma City, OK, 73105, with “Hurricane Harvey Relief” written in the memo line. Gifts of any size are tax deductible as charitable donations to a 501(c)(3) corporation, pursuant to IRS guidelines.
