AXTELL, TX (KXXV) -

Axtell Girl Scout Troop 22316 made a "Buddy Bench" for Axtell Elementary School.

The girl scouts said they wanted to make sure everyone at the school has a friend to play with. 

"We're just trying to make it so that you can have a person that would actually play with you and your day would turn into a very good one," Kylie Pechacek, an Axtell Brownie Girl Scout, said.

They worked on it this summer with the help of their scout leaders and added it to the playground area just in time for the start of the school year.

"I think it's important because all of the kids get to use it," Lanie Romine, an Axtell Brownie Girl Scout, said.

They painted words like "kind," "loving" and "thoughtful" on the bench.

"The words were what we thought was friendship," Brindley Northcutt, an Axtell Brownie Girl Scout, said.

The 11 girls in the troop are hoping their fellow classmates at Axtell Elementary will use it during recess and it will help create more friendships at school.
