LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A "Buddy Bench" was donated by Piney Grove United Methodist Church to Lake Hamilton Primary and Elementary School. The benches will be placed in the playgrounds.

The Buddy Bench’s purpose is if someone is feeling lonely or needs a friend they can sit on the bench and someone will come join them.

Students are encouraged to glance at the Buddy Bench so everyone has a friend to play with during recess.
