Posted by | June 15, 2018 9:30 am

These are no ordinary park benches. They are benches that have a more important purpose. Coined Buddy Benches, these seats are built with the idea that small acts of kindness can go a long way. “This is a project that is near and dear to our hearts,” stated Clarendon County resident Tiffany Myers, whose children Colin and Evan attend Walker Gamble Elementary. “With the issue of bullying on the forefront of parents’ minds, Buddy Benches could be a solution, or at the very least helpful, at preventing those situations,” said Myers.
