Resort 2 Kindness buddy bench for kids

“We at Whittier are so excited to utilize this gift that will help to spread more kindness throughout our school. Its anti-bullying message has already begun as our students enjoy this gift and use it to help each other. Often I look out the window while teaching and see many children sitting on the bench and enjoying each other’s company. We are so blessed to be given this gift with the generosity of Resort 2 Kindness!”

–Jennifer Shepherd, Whittier Elementary Art Teacher, Buddy Bench Recipient
