WHAT IS A BUDDY BENCH?


The buddy bench is a simple idea to eliminate loneliness and

foster friendship on the playground.  If you are sitting on the

bench you maybe looking for a friend.  When someone asks you

to play, join them, and always remember to glance over at the

school's Buddy Bench to invite new friends to join in on the fun.

Keep growing your circle of friends until everyone has

someone to play with.


Read the story about Christian Bucks, a 2nd grader at

Roundtown Elementary School in York, PA, where he

witnessed lonely classmates at his school's playground,

and wanted to make sure everyone had a friend.  What

was his solution? The Buddy Bench – modeled after a

bench he saw in a German school brochure.



WHY A BUDDY BENCH?


Cultivating an environment of positivity, kindness, and

encouragement for our young people is exactly what

Kait's Angels strives to achieve.  The Mattituck/Cutchogue PTA

jumped at the opportunity to sponsor a buddy bench at Cutchogue East

Elementary School in 2014 in honor of our angel Kaitlyn, and now we're thirsty for more!


With your help, Kait's Angels can sponsor buddy benches throughout the community and beyond and help spread this vital message to our delicate young people.




"Why did you do all this for me, I

don't deserve it.  I've done nothing

for you." he asked.  "You have been

my friend, and that in itself is a

tremendous thing." replied Charlotte.
