Congratulations Lleyton Rutz on being awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award for your exemplary efforts with BrickDreams. The award, which recognizes Americans of all ages who have volunteered significant amounts of their time to serve their communities and their country, was granted by The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program on behalf of President Obama. Lleyton also received the Certificate of Excellence award signaling service work that was deemed within the top 10 percent of applications within the state of California.
The McNulty Family was inspired to gather LEGO for BrickDreams after seeing the recent article on us in the El Dorado HillsTelegraph. They reached out to friends via social media and received a number of generous donations, including Duplo which is still desperately needed by BrickDreams. Thank you McNulty’s for gathering so many generous donations and for acting so quickly to get them to us.
Thank you to Ms. Stacey’s youth group at Lakehills Covenant Church in El Dorado Hills. They saw the article about BrickDreams in the Folsom Telegraph and wanted to dedicate time to helping us sort LEGO to help other kids. They did a terrific job and we look forward to working with them again in the future!
We are so proud of the great service Eric Barlog of Troop 550, Lleyton Rutz, Kyle Rutz, Connor Chang and Christopher Luo of Troop 121 have demonstrated on behalf of BrickDreams. Thank you! Take a look at the blog produced BrickMarketplace, the online retailer of LEGO products, that features the work of these young men.
Thank you to Sonny and Jeninne Ledford of Sierra College Storage in Roseville, CA. They kindly donated a month of storage as we actively work to get the LEGO out of storage and we have into the hands of children. Thank you so much for your generosity.
We’d like to thank Mr. John McInstosh who graciously transported 4 boxes of tennis balls cans to the Palo Alto Police department and into the hands of Lieutenant Zach Perron who will get them to deserving children. We are excited to have new community partners as far as Palo Alto and Mr. McIntosh made that happen. Thanks again.
We’ve received a lot of tennis ball cans lately so we’d like to express our thanks. Thank you to Folsom Lake Jr. College Mens and Womens Tennis team, Broadstone Racquet Club and Rio del Oro Racquet Club for not only recycling your tennis ball cans but helping BrickDreams in the process.
What’s fun to do on a Tuesday night? If you’re a member of the youth group at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, sort LEGO of course. A great group of youth and their parents helped BrickDreams prepare LEGO cans for distribution later this week. The Palo Alto Police Department, our newest partner, will be the lucky recipient of 4 cases. Thank you for your help. We’ll look forward to sorting with you again next year.
A big box of beautifully organized LEGO arrived from today from the McNeil Family of Redwood City, CA. Thank you so much for donating to our charity. We were able to immediately use them!
