OKLAHOMA CITY — A flood fund has been established by the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation (OCF) to help Cattlemen who have been affected by on-going statewide flooding in Oklahoma.
“While moisture is typically a welcome sight for cattlemen, recent and on-going, excessive rainfall across much of Oklahoma has cattlemen looking forward to sunshine and summer days,” said Taylor Shackelford of the OCF, a charitable arm of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association. “It is disheartening to see and hear what Oklahoma ranchers in the flooded areas are facing. The silver lining of these types of situations is that folks are quick to want to help those in unfortunate situations, and that is truly humbling. The OCF is happy to provide a place for funds to be held.”
100% of donations will be distributed to ranchers who have been affected by the floods. You may donate to this relief effort by mail or online. Make checks payable to Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation, with “Flood Relief” in the memo line and send to P.O. Box 82395., Oklahoma City, OK 73148. To donate online, visit www.okcattlemen.org .
The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Foundation was created to provide a charitable trust for the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association. The Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association is the trusted voice of the Oklahoma beef cattle industry and has members in all 77 counties in Oklahoma. To join or learn more visit www.okcattlemen.org.
