College and Life Fund for Adam Grindley, Jr.

Adam L. Grindley, Sr. passed away suddenly on November 1, 2020, leaving a significant physical and financial void in the life of his teenage son Adam L. Grindley, Jr. (also known as AJ). With that in mind, please consider making a contribution to help AJ cover costs associated with completing his freshman year of college. AJ recently turned 18 and is enrolled in his first semester at Hampton University, his top choice college. He is a music major, and he plans to teach and share his passion for all kinds of music. He studied and learned to play drums, piano, trumpet, and trombone -- all before graduating (with Honors!) from Bethel High School last June.

Every dollar raised will be used to support AJ's educational and life expenses following his father's unexpected passing. To help with budgeting, disbursements to AJ will be administered by close friends and family. Your contribution will help with his most pressing needs - including a significant car repair, unmet tuition needs (Hampton's tuition, room, and board totals more than $42,000 per year), and daily living expenses. Covering these items now will allow us to develop a longer term plan moving forward.

Thank you in advance for your investment in AJ's future!
