Byam Cares Program
In order to assist our families in need we have established a program called the “Byam Cares Program”. This program will give interested Byam families, community members and staff an avenue to donate gift cards that will be distributed to Byam families throughout the year. This type of donation has traditionally been done around the holidays but we would like to maintain the program throughout the year as hardships often arise. The principal, school counselor and nurse will work with families in need to determine recipients of the gift cards.
We request that gift cards be limited to Walmart, Target, and local grocery store gift cards. Donation gift cards can be put in an envelope with "Byam Cares" written on front, and brought to our Byam office.
