Record flooding across the Midwest have proved catastrophic for family farmers and ranchers in the region. It has cost the agriculture industry billions of dollars in crop loss, livestock deaths, and building damage, and has incapacitated large swaths of rural infrastructure. It will likely take months, if not years, for many operations to recover.
If you would like to help those affected by flooding, Nebraska Farmers Union (NeFU) is accepting tax deductible donations to support flood relief efforts for family farmers, ranchers, and members of rural communities. You can donate online here, or send checks to 1305 Plum Street, Lincoln, NE 68502. If you are a farmer in need of assistance, you can find national disaster resources here, and state-specific resources here.
National Farmers Union advocates on behalf of nearly 200,000 American farm families and their communities. We envision a world in which farm families and their communities are respected, valued, and enjoy economic prosperity and social justice.
