Please contact Vienna United Methodist Church and ask them to promote compassion by ending their support for hunting by accepting dead deer to "feed the hungry."
And please remind the church that given the prevalence of Chronic Wasting Disease in so many deer, it is criminal to provide this to people who are in dire need of healthy food.

Thank you for contacting this church and encouraging compassion!
From The Warren Reporter, February 10 2009:
Members of Cat Hollow, a Liberty-based hunting club that has been active in the community since 1947, recently donated several dozen pounds of venison to Vienna United Methodist Church's pantry program.
The program currently feeds more than a dozen families in Liberty and Independence.
"We are honored to be able to contribute to a program that allows us to help feed those in need locally," said Dan Oliver, Cat Hollow president.
"The donations from Cat Hollow sportsmen and others in the community are invaluable to those who need a little help during these tough economic times," said the Rev. James Craig, pastor of the church. "We are grateful for all of the hunters and everyone else who is able to contribute."
Many area churches have, or are affiliated with, pantries that may be interested in accepting donations from sportsmen.
