Thank You to the BrickDreams Volunteers at Cavitt Jr. High School!

On May 18th, 2015, as part of CJSF, Cavitt Jr. High School students were given the opportunity to volunteer for BrickDreams. In addition to Mrs. Davis’s 20 students, who opted to help BrickDreams during 7th period, 29 volunteers stayed after school for two hours.

The first group sorted through hundreds of pounds of LEGO by removing non-LEGO items as well as any weapons. Another set of students stuffed the sorted LEGO into donated empty tennis ball containers. Other Cavitt volunteers labeled and boxed the BrickDreams containers to ready them for distribution; the students packaged 191 tennis ball containers (95.5 pounds). In just a few short hours, the Cavitt Jr. High students changed the course many kids’ lives. We appreciate all of the volunteers’ hard work to help others less fortunate.IMG_5165 IMG_5166 IMG_5167 IMG_5168 IMG_5169 IMG_5170 IMG_5173 IMG_5176 IMG_5177 IMG_5178 IMG_5179 IMG_5180 IMG_5181 IMG_5182 IMG_5193-1Special thanks to; Mrs. Shannon Laurin, Mrs. Shelly Davis, Mrs. Lisa VandeSteeg, and Mrs. Jennifer Platt and the rest of the Cavitt Junior High School staff.

Keifer Family

A very belated thank you to Bill & Dorie Keifer, as well as their daughter Jennie.  Bill and Jennie stopped by with a wonderful second LEGO donation to BrickDreams, and they graciously allowed us to take their photo.  Bill is meticulous – all of the pieces were sorted and categorized!  We have already donated some of your LEGO; some children are less stressed out because of your gift.  Thanks, Keifer family!

Thank you, Leong Family, for shipping two huge boxes filled with LEGO from Hoboken, NJ to us!

Matthew, we are thrilled to accept the LEGO that you no longer play with; your donation will help many children to mentally escape, even for a short time, the terrible circumstance they may be in.  Thank you, Leong Family.
