The two community members are our own Kenzie Carter, candidate for Utah House District 74, and Sydni Makemo, ACLU Representative for southern Utah. After receiving a children's lunch debt notice from the Washington County School District, they saw a way to help families during this difficult time. Using social media, they have raised more than $5,000 and plan to pay off the entire school lunch debt in Washington County.
