We love how we are granted donations in the most surprising ways. At a recent 4-H meeting, the Singh family presented BrickDreams with a box full of sorted and packed Lego for donation. We had no idea they were planning that. Thank you Lucas for thinking of BrickDreams and taking the time to help us in a way that all those cans are ready right now to be given to kids in need.
We recently received a very special donation. A 12 year girl wished to gather donations to BrickDreams instead of being given gifts for her birthday. Part of her birthday celebration was to see the Lego Batman. The generous donations of her and her friends seemed to be a perfect match. And boy her friends were generous – new Lego, Lego containers, and mini-fig display cabinets. It was a big box filled with so much. BrickDreams volunteers recently prepared Zuzu’s donation and everyone was touched by her thoughtfulness and kind nature. Thank you so much for thinking of us. Everything you sent will be put to great use.
The large donation from the Fields family of Antelope was the perfect community service project on March 26th. Thank you very much. Members of the Eureka Granite Bay 4-H club spent the afternoon preparing Legos and getting them ready to give to our community partners. Your gift was deeply appreciated and will give many children great happiness.
The Yolo County Multi-Disciplinary Interview Center has been a wonderful partner to BrickDreams. They help get the news out of BrickDreams efforts and have been responsible for growing our presence to new heights in Yolo County. Yesterday, BrickDreams was able to donate 12 cases or 144 cans to several agencies in Yolo County. We are amazed and saddened to realize how many agencies are needed in just one county serving child victims of abuse. Thank you MDIC and all the Yolo agencies who work tirelessly to make such a difference.
BrickDreams has joined forces with Stand Up Placer in Auburn and made a donation of 4 cases of LEGO to Annie Hess, Advocacy Specialist on behalf of the children they serve. We are proud of the great work Stand Up Placer does and are excited to be working with both the Roseville and Auburn locations. A big thank goes to Amos, Martha and Leah Humber wonderful youth partners who sorted, packed and delivered the donation. We couldn’t do it without you!
Gold Country 4-H club Community Leader, Johnna Humber, inspired me (Lleyton) to get other 4-Hers involved in sorting events for BrickDreams. She believes in BrickDreams so much that Gold Country 4-H sorts LEGO every month at their 4-H Community Meeting. That’s some community service! So far they have completed 59 cans in just 2 months and keep asking for more! They do great, detailed work. Some of their members participated in Make a Difference Day with us and have become expert sorters at this point! Thank you Gold Country 4-H we appreciate what a great ambassador you are for BrickDreams.
Thank you to the Loomis 4-H Club who responded to my invitation for other 4-h clubs to host a sorting activity at their monthly community meeting. Community leader, Ellen Doerner, reported the youth had fun working on the sorting project. Many of them came to the monthly 4-H community meeting early, just so they could start before the meeting. And boy did they work hard sorting 3 cases as an awesome team! They followed the instructions perfectly. Thank you Loomis 4-H. BrickDreams appreciates your community spirit!
