LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Near record numbers came out for this year's Hunger Hike, but the money raised was short of their goal.
The Hunger Hike raises money for Lafayette Urban Ministry's food bank, Food Finders Food Bank, and St. Thomas Aquinas' mission for clean water in Haiti.
The Hike raised $60,000, $30,000 short of their goal.
Executive Director of LUM Joe Micon said they already are stretched thin and need this money to help the community.
"It is absolutely critical that we make up this $30,000 short fall and that we evaluate what we can do in insuing years to make sure it doesn't happen again," Micon said.
The groups are extending their donation period for the next two months so they can reach their goal.
