CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Just outside Charlotte Fire Station 13, the firefighters noticed a group of kids who always wait for the bus, so the gesture of kindness was a no-brainer.
The firefighters decided to build a place for the kids to sit while they wait. Using donated materials and some of their own, the group from 'A Shift' crafted a hand-made bench in between calls.
The bench now sits just outside the station's front door as a welcoming place to have a seat.
Firefighters say it's just a way for them to give back to the community.
"We are a part of the community," said Firefighter Ryan Albini. "We see the same people every day. We go to the same calls every day. This is our second home."
