Farmers in North Central Washington Need Your Help!

Farmers and ranchers in north central Washington have endured the worst fire season in the state’s history.

Due to the Carlton Complex Fire, more than 250 homes were lost in Okanogan County, 3,000 miles of fencing was burned, more than a thousand head of cattle were lost, and farm equipment and numerous outbuildings were destroyed.

To help these victims, Washington Farm Bureau has established the WFB Disaster Relief Fund. All monies donated to this fund will go directly to farmers and ranchers impacted by the fire.

To donate, please make your check out to the WFB Disaster Relief Fund and mail it to 975 Carpenter Road NE, Suite 301, Lacey, WA 98516.
