Texas Storm Relief

 

Many parts of Texas have been devastated by the wind, rain, and floods of Hurricane Harvey as it hammered the state throughout the past week. This historic storm’s multi-day devastation of Texas and the Gulf Coast – and now the rescue, relief, and recovery effort – has captured the attention of our entire nation. This is indeed a humbling reminder of how life can change in an instant.

Despite the devastation of the storm’s destruction, there remains hope for a brighter tomorrow thanks to the resounding generosity of America’s people, including our own Kentucky Farm Bureau family. As it turns out, KFB not only loves Kentucky but Texas, too. The kindness and giving nature of KFB’s members, agents and employees always impresses me, and that is on display yet again at this very moment.

Many of you have asked how you can help in the aftermath of the storm and I sincerely appreciate your willingness to get involved. Starting today, we will begin collecting funds in cooperation with and on behalf of Texas Farm Bureau’s relief efforts. To help your generosity stretch even farther, our Kentucky Farm Bureau Insurance Company has pledged to match “dollar for dollar” any contribution you make to this campaign.
