Thomas Bailey Memorial Lunch Fund

Thomas Bailey, a 17-year-old junior at James River High School in Midlothian, VA, passed away on 12/17/17. He was enrolled in Culinary Arts at Chesterfield Technical Center and a member of the fencing club. During his freshman and sophomore years, he played bassoon for the symphonic band. Lunch was my brother’s favorite part of school. In his name, my family and I want to start a lunch fund program to help elementary students, for whatever reason, cannot be served a hot lunch. There were many times growing up that my brother and I were served cold cheese sandwiches at school because we did not have enough money in our lunch accounts. All money raised will be donated to Chesterfield County elementary school cafeterias to help students who may need a couple extra dollars for lunch each day. We won’t stop until every Chesterfield County elementary school cafeteria receives at least $200. There are 38 elementary schools in the county and we are hoping to help every one of them.

Thomas is loved and missed dearly by his family.

Because of your generosity, the following cafeterias will receive a donation. This includes money from this gofundme and cash donations received at his memorial service:
