LIMA — Boy Scout Troop 103 has donated buddy benches to Lima Central Catholic for its three elementary schools.
The buddy bench is an idea to eliminate loneliness and to foster friendships on the playground. The goal of the bench is to help new or shy kids make new friends. At recess if a child has no friends to play with, they would sit on the buddy bench and hopefully someone will ask them to play.
These benches will be presented to the Catholic elementary schools Tuesday at the following times: St. Rose of Lima at 1:30 p.m.; St. Gerard at 2 p.m.; and St. Charles Borromeo at 2:30 p.m.
