HUNTERTOWN, Ind. (WFFT) - A nonprofit is making sure Huntertown Elementary students don't go without food on the weekends.
However, this year they ran into a challenge.
Boomerang Backpacks serves 40 schools and 3,000 students.
This year however, they ran into a roadblock.
"The demand and the money just needs to be stretched to try to make sure all of these kids have that bag on the weekends," volunteer Kim Pranger said.
The number of students receiving food went from 40 to 100 at Huntertown Elementary School for the Boomerang Backpacks.
Chad Romey, an attorney, with Blackburn and Green answered the call for help.
The law firm helped fill the gap by donating a month worth of soup for students.
"Given the current climate with a lot of people on unemployment right now, Boomerang Backpacks has seen their needs go up, so what we want to do is come along side them in this great work that they are doing and provide the support that we can," Romey said.
