To the Editor:

I am voting for Church World Service this year by participating in the annual McGovern CROP Walk on Nov. 3 at 4 p.m. We gather at the DWU/Avera sports complex to walk the "Wesleyan way" around the campus.

Thousands of walks are organized each year throughout the U.S. contributing over $11 million to Church World Service. Twenty-five percent of our funds will be given back to the Mitchell area food pantry.

Church World Service has been around since 1945 helping with war torn Europe get back on its feet after Hitler, now in many countries and in America also assisting after natural disasters such as Hurricane Matthew. Church World Service partners with over 2,000 organizations in helping such as the food pantry and works with ACT Alliance in coordinating services like Haiti.

In this time of election stress and negative aspects rest assured that many folks are in these impacted areas bring goods and services to those in need. One of my third cousins has been in Africa as a doctor with the AIDS crisis, friends from the First United Methodist Church have built a clinic and sent a student to medical school. There are many ways to help those in need and this walk is one part of voting for the future we can be proud of.
