Huron S.D. (KELO AM) - The fund is designed to help ranch families impacted by the blizzard with immediate financial needs: cash for groceries, utility bills, or whatever they feel would be helpful to their family and household.
We truly believe Farm Bureau is a "family," so Farm Bureau member families will receive first priority when the funds are distributed.
County Farm Bureaus in the affected area West River will submit names and needs to South Dakota Farm Bureau, and those in need will receive funds by check.The Fund will remain open beyond November, but we hope to have the bulk of the donations collected by November 22 so that the total may be announced during our SDFB 96th Annual Meeting -- and so that the funds may be distributed shortly thereafter.
How it works:
- 100% of your donation will go directly to ranch families impacted by the blizzard.
- The "South Dakota Farm Bureau Cares Fund" has been set up at Farmers & Merchants Bank in Huron, SD.
- Donations are tax-deductible.
