Farm and ranch communities are like families, and those connections extend across the country, especially in times of need. Hurricane Harvey has dramatically impacted the livelihoods of these families in Texas, and – as a member of the Texas District of the Farm Credit System – we are doing our part to help. Mississippi Land Bank has made a contribution to the State of Texas Agriculture Relief (STAR) Fund, which provides funds directly to impacted farmers and ranchers. The funds can be used to rebuild crucial structures and restore operations, and will prove vital in the coming weeks as Texas agricultural communities work to recover from the damage caused by wind and floods
Many of our employees, directors, and customers have also shown their generosity by joining us in contributing to the STAR Fund. If you would like to contribute as well, you can do so here. One hundred percent of donations collected will be distributed to those who incurred losses related to natural disasters.
