Atlas Disaster Relief Fund

Posted: Updated:

An auction was held last night as part of the annual Stockman's Ball to raise money for a relief fund for ranchers who were hit hardest by the blizzard.

Many North Dakota producers have already donated cows or calves from their own herds to South Dakotans who suffered devastating losses. Over 50-thousand dollars has already been collected for The Atlas Disaster Relief Fund and applications and nominations for assistance can now be made online.

"The outpouring of support that's been tremendous," says Julie Schaff Ellingson, North Dakota Stockmen's Foundation. "When the winter storm hit, our phones lit up like Christmas trees. People calling wondering how they could help. Again, there's a variety of ways to support that people are providing, whether it be a financial contribution or selecting livestock from their own herds to help families rebuild their own herds after being devastated."

If you would like to contribute, apply for relief funds, or nominate someone who might be eligible for assistance, go to ndstockmen.org or call the Stockmen's Association at 223-2522.  

Money from the disaster fund will be distributed early next year based on need.  The deadline to apply for relief is January 31st.
