BUILDING KINDNESS IN OUR COMMUNITIES

SCHERRER CARES

At Scherrer Construction, we truly understand the importance of community involvement and helping make a difference in the world. In result, Scherrer Construction started Scherrer Cares, a non-profit organization, to help give back to the communities it serves. Scherrer Cares donates to a variety of causes including food pantries, pet shelters, school programs and community fundraisers each year. As part of our mission to build kindness in communities, we even established our own buddy bench program, an anti-bullying initiative, in which provides Wisconsin schools with customized buddy benches to help spread kindness and build friendships. 

SCHERRER CARES BUDDY BENCH PROGRAM

WHAT IS A BUDDY BENCH?

  • A place for kids to go to if they are being bullied and need help

  • A place for kids to be a buddy by spreading kindness and building friendships

  • A tool to spread awareness and help prevent bullying

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Through fundraising efforts and community support, Scherrer Cares will partner with you to provide your school with a Buddy Bench. Based on the school’s design choice, benches will be constructed with their school name, colors, and logo. A presentation will be given by the school to the student body to introduce and explain the relevance of the Buddy Bench. Schools will then be responsible for utilizing the Buddy Bench as a tool to help initiate their own anti-bullying efforts. 

HOW DOES IT BENEFIT YOUR SCHOOL?

  • PROVIDES a safe place for kids to eliminate loneliness and foster friendships

  • HELPS reduce and prevent bullying

  • INCREASES awareness, involvement, and positive culture environment throughout the school and community

  • EMPOWERS young people to make socially responsible decisions and create change

BUDDY BENCH TESTIMONIALS

WILLIAMS BAY SCHOOL DISTRICT

Unfortunately, bullying takes place in one form or another on almost every school campus. The Buddy Bench provides a visible symbol that this type of behavior will not be tolerated and that every student has a right to a safe learning environment, both physically and emotionally, when they enter our school buildings.

Our Buddy Bench acts as an always present visual reminder to be kind. The Buddy Bench symbolizes making good choices, being inclusive, and taking care of one another. Having the bench on our playground is one more way to remind kids to make positive choices, and strengthens the school culture as a whole.

Educating our students, truly means helping create individuals who can independently think deeper, analyze, and problem solve in both academics and social settings. These skills are crucial for their development, and for us, the buddy bench in an important piece to that intricate puzzle to help them be college and career ready, both as productive people and successful students.
