Madera County Farm Bureau (MCFB) is accepting donations for livestock impacted by the Creek Fire.

On September 4th, 2020, the Creek Fire erupted in the communities of Big Creek and Shaver Lake, quickly spreading to neighboring areas including Huntington Lake, Mammoth Pool, North Fork, and Bass Lake, among several others, while still threatening many more.  To date the fire has grown to over 160,000 acres, and has forced families, pets and livestock to be evacuated for an uncertain amount of time.  Animals are being sheltered in various facilities in both Madera and Fresno County, and MCFB has stepped up to help where we can.

MCFB has been in communication with various facilities in Madera County currently housing livestock, and has coordinated efforts to get needed supplies to each location.  ALL funds donated through this campaign will go to the purchase of necessary supplies.  If you would like to help with supplies, but aren’t sure what to get, where to get it, or what to do with it please feel free to donate here, and we will get it taken care of for you.

If you have actual livestock supplies, please feel free to contact the MCFB office at (559)674-8871, and we will arrange to receive items. 

Thank you in advance for you contribution.
