LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Community members are full of chili and smiles after donating to Jessie's kids Wednesday evening.

Wednesday evening was the 6th annual chili supper at the Tippecanoe County Fairgounds.

Jessie's Kids supports at-risk youth with basic, educational and recreational needs.

All the money donated goes toward funding things like high school equivalency diplomas, work uniforms and social skills.

The vice president of the organization said kids end up loving the program.

"Kids really say 'I didn't think i was going to like you, i didn't think this program was going to help,'" said Melissa Holley. "Then at the end they realize we are trying to help and they identify needs they didn't know were needs and that we are able to help them."

The event typically brings in more than $1,000.
