Buddy Blog 9/3/14
When the marketing director of the Colonial Park Mall in Harrisburg heard about the Buddy Bench, she immediately knew she wanted to do something. She wanted to find a way to bring benches to Harrisburg area schools. She contacted the local technical school and their carpentry department jumped on board and wanted to help. Within three days, they had two beautiful benches made! She really wanted to know what would be a good way to choose which schools would get benches. We all talked about it and after getting everyone’s input, our principal included, we decided an essay contest would be the way to go. We wanted to be sure that the benches would only be going to schools where there were kids and staff who would support it. Click here to learn more about the contest specifics! We’re really excited about it!
What is the Buddy Bench?
Roundtown Elementary helped make this possible, and we thank them for being receptive to Christian's idea!
