In October 2019, Georgia residents were struck with loss of property, crops, and more after Hurricane Michael made its way through our state. GACD, along with Georgia’s Conservation Districts, began gathering supplies and funds to help our communities hit the hardest by Hurricane Michael.
Districts helped to raise over $4,500 to help with relief efforts. With these funds GACD staff was able to provide water, food and supplies to five counties in Southwest Georgia.
On December 14, GACD partnered with the Dougherty County Georgia Farm Bureau to provide a Hurricane Michael Relief Program Public Meeting in Albany that provided valuable updates on available disaster assistance programs. Funds were used to help provide Christmas presents including clothes and toys to children that suffered greatly in the aftermath of Hurricane Michael.
Thank you to the districts and businesses that stepped in to help our communities in their times of need.
