Groups Organizing Assistance for those Affected by Wildfires

“DEVASTATING FIRES IN THE WEST

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the farmers and ranchers working to protect their cattle as the wild fires burn out of control in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Colorado. This is more than just land burning, this is their life and livestock. We are also keeping those battling the fires in our prayers. May they have the strength to push on and overcome this devastating time.

We have received several calls this morning from individuals wanting to know how to help. We know they have very urgent needs. NCBA has set up a way for you to donate and find out more information. Please go to their website: http://www.beefusa.org/ and click on the link to find out more about fire relief resources.

Again, please keep them in your prayers that the fires will end soon.”

-Georgia Cattlemen’s Association

National Cattlemen’s Beef Association has a contact organization in every affected state, as well as the list of supplies needed by those affected by the fires over the past few weeks. I urge you if you are able to help out, please do. The stories of loss coming out of the affected areas over the last few days have been quite tragic, from the loss of structures and equipment to livestock, and even lives.
