MERIDIAN -- More than a week after Kuna Football player, Boone Bartlome broke his neck, we continue to see the community's outpouring of support for the young athlete.

All four Meridian Dutch Bro's locations sold drinks at a discount with all the proceeds going to Boone. At the end of the day, they had raised $14,898 for his recovery.

Also revving up donations for the Bartlome family Monday night were the "Fired up Lads and Ladies" motorcycle club, who collected just under $400 Monday night alone.

"We have a few members that went to Kuna we have some members that live in Kuna and we just want to help support whatever we can," said Sam Laird with Fired Up Lads and Ladies motorcycle club.

Laird also said they will continue to collect donations throughout the week for Boone.

KTVB's Sports Director Jay Tust heard from Kuna Football Coach Lee Leslie, that Boone had his first full meal on Monday since November 7.
