We had some very generous Lego donations in advance of yesterday’s Folsom Community Service Day that helped make sorting and packing 17 cases a reality! Thank you to the Hughes family of New York, the Garcia family of Texas and the anonymous donation left for us at the Community Service Day event. And a huge thank you to the 50 volunteers who enthusiastically supported BrickDreams.
BrickDreams thanks Mrs. Fowler and her CJSF group for not only helping us sort, but for conducting a week long donation drive on campus plus with their feeder elementary schools. We not only received Lego but Duplo too. And in some cases the donations were brand new. We were thankful for their tremendous generosity and for a great afternoon of sorting.
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’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.
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.
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!
The Eureka Granite Bay 4-H Club held their first community service event of 2016. Eighteen members, friends and family sorted bricks and provided quality control on several cans of tennis balls. In the end, they completed 5 cases of cans. A wonderful effort of 60 lbs of LEGO! Their effort will go to some deserving kids.
