Buddy Benches Donated by Faville Fund

Local non-profit organization The Cubby Faville Memorial Fund generously donated seven “Buddy Benches” to be installed at school buildings in our district.

Cubby Faville was a Foundations of Food teacher at HFM Boces and the fund’s primary objective is to promote education and sports among youth. The purpose of a “Buddy Bench” is to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground; a child can sit there when they want someone to talk to and other children will see him or her and invite them to join in.

In the photo below, two Warren Street students admire their building’s new Buddy Bench.
