Farm Bureau donates $20k+ to fire victims

RBC | The Colorado Farm Bureau Foundation has donated $20,000 to help those affected by the Spring Creek Fire in Huerfano and Costilla counties. Along with a $1,000 donation from Colorado Farm Bureau Insurance, collected donations will be given to individuals who were affected by the massive fire.

“The fire laid waste to the property and homes of many farmers, ranchers and families in the area,” said Don Shawcroft, President of the Colorado Farm Bureau. “Many families were tragically impacted by this disaster. We hope that this donation can help lessen the pain for these families, even if it’s only a little bit.”

The $20,000 donation to Spring Creek Fire victims is in addition to funds being raised through the Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund. One hundred percent of the donated funds will go directly to victims of the Spring Creek Fire and others burning around the state.

If you are able to donate, please make checks payable to Colorado Farm Bureau Foundation, cash and credit card payments are being accepted at this time. Please note Disaster Fund-CO Wildfire in the memo line on the check. Cash and checks can be sent to:
