Lafayette First United Methodist Church decided to help out an area man and his family Tuesday afternoon.

The church held their annual Election Day lunch with people paying for the meal with donations. This year, the money raised at the lunch is going to Brandon Scott, who is from Alger and is suffering from an extreme case of pancreatitis. Those at the church say that helping out the family, just felt like the right thing to do.

"We do this every year, it’s a fundraiser that we have, and when we're able to see a need that we're able to be met by us we think why not, so I guess it’s important to us because we’re looking for ways that we can impact the world for the better," said Pastor Bob Clinger.

Brandon was first affected in July and has been out of work since then.
