Hurricane Relief

AFC lends a helping hand to Harvey victims.


With the desire to make a difference, Alabama Farmers Cooperative teamed up with Coca-Cola, the North Alabama cattle farmers and Colbert Farmers Cooperative in Leighton to help those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey. On September 5, an 18-wheeler loaded with water (38,000 bottles) left Coca-Cola bottling in Decatur headed to Dayton, Texas. We want to specially thank Coca-Cola, Frank Troup; Alabama Farmers Cooperative CEO, Rivers Myers; Vernon Lane of City View Farms, Decatur; Delmo Payne of Grandview Farms, Hamilton; and Wayne Jacks of Diamond J Farms, Arab. All three of these cattle producers are loyal customers of the Quality Co-op store in their area. We would also like to thank Dale Spain of Colbert Farmers Cooperative for providing transportation for the water.
