Decrease HelenaMT School Lunch Debt

The Helena (MT) Public School District has indicated its intention to send 100K in student lunch debt to collections. This decision has been made in spite of the fact that the district cannot say how old the debt is or what percentage of low income/free-and-reduced-lunch-eligible families will be impacted by collections. The district also acknowledges that debt collection policies are inconsistent from school-to-school. http://helenair.com/news/local/article_8d4e39cb-d615-5ec9-88b4-0bdd64369a98.html
Helena's--and all of Montana's--schools are in the midst of major funding pinch that we as a community need to address. But that does not mean we should squeeze the money out of our neediest, most vulnerable families. Please contribute any amount you can to make sure that lunch debt doesn't hurt students and their families.
