Boca Raton students launch we dine together

Adults should take a page out of the books of a group of high school students in Boca Raton.

The charitable teens are making sure their fellow classmates have some treasured company at lunchtime.

They have formed a club called We Dine Together at Boca Raton Community High School in Boca Raton, Florida. The club is made up of students who comb their school’s courtyard during lunchtime seeking out students who have lunch alone. They then introduce themselves and get to know the students.

According to the Sun Sentinel, Denis Estimon, who came to the United States from Haiti in first grade, is one of four students who helped create We Dine Together. In an interview with Steve Hartman for CBS Evening News, Estimon explained his motivation for the club.

“To me it’s like … if we don’t try and go make that change, who’s going to do it?” he said.

Viewers who watched Hartman’s piece, which aired on CBS for his “On The Road” segment, praised the club members for extending a helping hand.
