Kentucky Farm Bureau has reached out to Farm Bureaus across the country regarding relief efforts for the families and communities who experienced such great losses due to widespread devastation as a result of the tornadoes last weekend.
“As you all know, the heartbreaking devastation from this past weekend’s tornado outbreak is overwhelming for so many families and communities throughout the Commonwealth,” read a letter from Kentucky Farm Bureau Executive Vice President Drew Graham. “Never have so many Kentuckians experienced such monumental loss. Many lost everything.”
Graham wrote that when calamity strikes, Farm Bureau members always come together to help others in need, and we know many of you have already begun this process in your counties.
“While the needs are admittedly great, in true Farm Bureau fashion our willingness to help our neighbors is even greater. So many of you have already reached out asking how you can help,” wrote Graham. “As such, we are organizing a way for the strength of Kentucky Farm Bureau’s generosity to unite under one banner to make a concentrated, positive impact in our hurting communities. We invite you to join us in this effort.”
