A Very S.P.E.C.I.A.L. Trip
Tuesday, Jan 13th, 2015
We hope everyone had a great holiday season! We are excited to be back in the office again and can't wait to see what 2015 has in store for Bynum Aesthetic Dentistry!
During the Christmas season, we have had the privilege to get to know a very special group of kids through J.L. Mann High School Academy. The school is home to a unique club of high school students called the S.P.E.C.I.A.L.S. (Students Pursue Exceptional Challenges in All Life Skills), who also happen to have moderate intellectual disabilities and/or orthopedic impairments and some are even medically fragile. Some of the students, who range in age from 14 to 21, are also disadvantaged socially and financially. Due to their low cognitive ability, these students do not have the opportunity to experience many of the fun and educational activities that most other students enjoy, we want to help change that!
In February 2015, the S.P.E.C.I.A.L.S. club is planning a trip for 28 students to Orlando Florida to visit Disney World. The students have been working hard through candy sales and school supported fundraisers, but they still need our help to reach their fundraising goal! We have set a goal of $2,500 to benefit the S.P.E.C.I.A.L.S. trip, and we would love to have our patients help us reach this goal!
We will be accepting donations through the month of January to benefit the trip. If you are interested in learning more information, or to learn how you can donate please call our office at 864-297-5585 ext. 2
Thank you for considering helping such a great group of students, this trip would not be possible without the support of community neighbors and friends like you!
