“Without becoming a political discussion, I ask you this,” said Ted Ellis of Emmetsburg. “If you do not have food, and more importantly hope, why would you not try to make the dangerous trip north to the United States? If you have nothing you are risking nothing.” Ellis suggests, “Perhaps if we provide some food and some how some hope, we can make a difference. Let’s do this person to person and not as a government.” Together with entities like Escuela El Sembrador and NPH Rancho Santa Fe, WE CAN make a difference. Ellis has been to Escuela El Sembrador and NPH Rancho Santa Fe: see escuelaelsembrador.org and nphusa.org Join the Group Of Volunteers Join “Then Feed Just One” Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Palo Alto County fairgrounds in Emmetsburg.
