AT&T Donates $15,000 to Louisiana Farm Bureau to Support Families Impacted by Hurricanes

AT&T has contributed $15,000 to the Louisiana Farm Bureau, a non-profit organization focused on the strength and vitality of Louisiana’s agricultural industry, to support the organization’s Disaster Relief Fund that assists families impacted by hurricanes.

“Hurricanes Laura and Delta destroyed agricultural infrastructure, downed timber and displaced cattle all across southwest Louisiana,” said Louisiana Farm Bureau President Jim Harper. “We’re grateful that AT&T made such a generous donation to the Louisiana Farm Bureau Foundation Disaster Relief Fund. This donation, combined with other donations, allowed us to distribute more than $175,000 to farmers, ranchers and landowners who are rebuilding their lives and livelihoods.”

While our AT&T and FirstNet1 teams stand at the ready, prepared for natural disasters and ensuring the network is resilient and operational when a disaster strikes, we also work each and every day to strengthen the communities where we live and work.

“Year after year, the Louisiana Farm Bureau and AT&T have consistently helped to build and strengthen communities across Louisiana, and their leadership has made a tremendous difference across the area,” said State Representative John Stefanski.

In addition to enhancing and expanding our networks, our teams are committed to strengthening our communities by supporting organizations – like the Louisiana Farm Bureau that are helping build better futures.

“For more than 140 years, AT&T has been committed to keeping Louisiana connected.”

Matt Adams — Regional Director, AT&T Louisiana

“For more than 140 years, AT&T has been committed to keeping Louisiana connected,” said Matt Adams, Regional Director AT&T Louisiana. “While that is most often through technology and high-speed services delivered by our wired and wireless networks, we are also building critical connections with community organizations that share our dedication to the strength of the communities where we live and work.”
