De Vor Dairy Farm - Tornado Relief
A tornado ripped through the De Vor Dairy Farm in Decker, Michigan on June 22 and left a devastating path of destruction.
THE DAMAGE: In addition to approximately 40 cattle that were killed, barns, farm equipment, trailers and a farmhouse were damaged or destroyed. Thankfully, all farm employees and the De Vor family were not injured.

NEEDS: Please call the farm directly to determine volunteer needs including food for the volunteers and employees.
DONATE NOW. Funds raised will assist with any expenses associated with the tragedy and anything that is not covered by insurance. Every dollar helps!
Note: With the permission of the family, I have created this campaign on their behalf. All donations are controlled by Henk de Vor.
Please look at the broader picture here. Insurance will eventually cover some things but you need to understand that a dairy farm derives the bulk of it's income from the milk it sells - this farm no longer has an income and may not for many months. Not only do they have the normal bills (such as utilities and food) but they also have many employees that they will struggle to pay. You can't expect them to survive on well wishes.
