Bench #10 has been donated to Chimborazo Elementary School in the Churchill district of Richmond, Va. as a result of many kindnesses. This was one of the most encouraging visits we have had to date. Bill and I had the pleasure to meet David Peck, the principal of Chimborazo Elementary School. He welcomed us into the school with open, eager arms and was soooooo grateful to be receiving a bench. We were struck by the vibrant atmosphere of this once very dreary school. David is a principal who clearly values kindness, compassion, and provides a nurturing environment for his students. He believes that unless these values are taught and encouraged, then how could he, or any teachers, try to improve the academic achievements of the students. He said many of his kids often faced huge challenges outside of school, and the most basic needs of kindness and compassion were too often neglected - so he was determined to make the effort to do something about that situation. This bench is being placed right by the front door so that every person entering will be reminded that Kind Acts Touch Everyone!!!
