Cain Elementary School in Whitehouse has a new spot for its student to make friends.

Members of Smith County’s Girl Scouts Brownie Troup #571 donated a “buddy bench” to the school during their end-of-year celebration program Wednesday.

The bench is a place for students who are feeling left out or in need of a friend during recess activities to show other students that he or she needs a buddy, according to the district. It is meant to teach children about acts of kindness as well as including others.

The bench will be placed on the school playground.
