There is still time to donate to the Nebraska Farm Bureau Disaster Relief Fund to benefit people who were affected by the massive floods across Nebraska earlier this year. The fund will be closing on August 15.
Nearly $3.3 million has been raised, and 90 percent of the funds have been distributed to Nebraska farmers, ranchers, and rural communities suffering from the natural disasters that impacted the state in March, said Steve Nelson, Nebraska Farm Bureau president.
“As conditions slowly return to a new normal for Nebraska agriculture, it is our hope that the Nebraska Farm Bureau Disaster Relief fund has helped get farmers, ranchers, and rural communities back on their feet sooner. Nebraska Farm Bureau is equipped and ready to help if other disasters strike affecting farmers and ranchers,” Nelson said.
While donations to the Nebraska Farm Bureau Disaster Relief Fund will end August 15, there are other ways to support continued disaster relief efforts. Donors interested in helping those affected by flooding in Central Nebraska or farmers in Western Nebraska who are without water for their crops because of a canal breach in Wyoming can learn more and make donations to the Kearney Area Community Foundation at www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr or the Oregon Trail Community Foundation at www.otcf.org.
