This is the image for the news article titled Bailey, community come to aid of student needing heart transplantYou may have seen Bailey on the news in February for its superhero fundraiser for student Rajay Linton, who needs a heart transplant. Here's a link to the story. We're so proud of how our school and district have come together to support Rajay, and his family is extremely grateful for everyone's generosity. Other West Haven schools also held their own Superhero Day fundraisers for Rajay.

Rajay's aunt, who recently adopted him, has set up a GO FUND ME account to help defray the out-of-pocket expenses she and her husband will incur once Rajay receives his new heart. Mrs. Linton is attempting to raise the money on her own due to the enormous expense of this life-saving operation her newly adopted son needs to survive. Your help is appreciated.

blanketAfter news of Rajay's story spread, Kathy Skinner, a West Haven resident, donated a special blanket to the Bailey student. Kathy read an article about  Rayjay in the newspaper and made him a "hug" blanket. The blanket is tied with knots, and each knot is considered a hug. Kathy has made close to 1,000 blankets for those in need, and as soon as she read Rayjay's story, she knew she would make one for him. The fabric with hearts was picked especially for Rayjay. Kathy and her family members are organ donors, so Rayjay's story really touched them. Kathy's thoughtfulness and generosity is just another example of West Haven's great community!
