Nelson Elementary will receive a new buddy bench today

(KPLC) - Nelson Elementary in Lake Charles is receiving a new "buddy bench" today.

The bench will be placed on the playground and kids can sit on it during recess if they need a friend to play with or if they're feeling sad.

This will be the signal for other students to show support.
