New York Farm Bureau Urges Donations for Sandy Victims
Albany--As the devastation from Hurricane Sandy continues to unfold, the need for fresh food is a priority for the thousands of victims directly impacted by the massive storm. Relief efforts are unfolding, and New York Farm Bureau is encouraging its members to donate, if they can.
“Many of our farmers who experienced Irene and Lee last year know first-hand the hardships that follow a devastating storm. By nature, farmers are a generous bunch, and we encourage all of our members to give what they can to the relief effort. So many people came to our aid last year, and we will do our best to repay the generosity,” said Dean Norton, NYFB president.
On its website the organization has provided resources for farmers and others interested in donating.
