The purpose of the buddy bench is for a lonely student to sit down on it if they are having trouble making friends. Then, fellow students willing to offer friendship will join the student on the bench.

The bench was designed by the brothers and says “make a friend, be a friend.”

PTA were able to pay for the bench after the two students lobbied for it.
