Wipe Out Deer Valley Lunch Debt

My name is Rigo Gonzalez and I am from Phoenix, Arizona. I am launching a campaign to help pay off all student lunch debt at my children’s school district, Deer Valley Unified. Deer Valley Unified School District is located primarily in Phoenix, Arizona.

Deer Valley policy states that children will receive lunch regardless of any amount owed, however debt is still accrued to the child’s account that the parent is then responsible for paying back.

ALL money donated (once GoFundMe gets their share) will go towards this cause in hopes that all lunch debt will be paid off.  I will be withdrawing every $1,000 this campaign makes and forwarding it to the school district in the form of a check. I am coordinating with the district's Food and Nutrition Director to ensure your donations will go to the families that need it most first!

Families shouldn’t have to worry about feeding their children, and I sincerely hope you will consider donating. Any amount is appreciated, and thank you for your generosity!

Hello everyone,

Earlier today I had the opportunity to stop by Deer Valley Unified School District’s Food and Nutrition office to drop off a check for the donation amount raised thus far, minus GoFundMe fees. Thank you all so much for making this possible!

It is my sincere hope that I can make drop off more such checks, but I need your help! Let’s get the word out and see how much we can raise by the end of the school year!

Hi everyone! Two updates. First, I am in contact with the district and will be donating the first $5,000 that YOU helped raise next week. I have asked that the money goes to the families with the most debt first. I will definitely post another update at that point.

Secondly, unfortunately donations have slowed down significantly the past week or so. If you can, please consider another donation. If you can’t, that is perfectly fine- you have already done more than most by donating, so thank you! I would also just ask all of you to please keep sharing this campaign with everyone you know to help spread the word.

The plan as of right now is to keep this campaign going until the end of the school year, so please help me raise enough to make as much of a dent in the debt as possible. Thank you!

We have raised over $7,000! I am extremely thankful for all of your generosity! Please continue to share and donate until we reach our goal.

All lunch debt carries over into the next school year, so let’s make sure as many families as possible won’t have to worry about starting out the next school year in lunch debt. Thank you all so much!
