Wellington-based nonprofit Bricks Busting Boredom, which collects new and used Lego bricks to donate to children’s hospitals, recently received a donation of 350 pounds of Lego bricks, its largest used Lego donation.
Kindness Matters 365 (KM365) is a local nonprofit organization out of Boca Raton with kindness clubs in 96 schools in Florida. Nine KM365 clubs collected Lego bricks for Bricks Busting Boredom during the month of October.
“The Legos donated by Kindness Matters 365 will put smiles on children’s faces throughout South Florida,” said Sarah Clein, the 17-year-old Wellington High School junior who runs Bricks Busting Boredom.
The organization was started in 2015 by Sarah’s older brother, Daniel Clein. Since Daniel’s graduation in 2017, Sarah has taken over the program and expanded it, including donating to homeless shelters. She would like to include women’s shelters throughout Palm Beach County as well. For more information about Bricks Busting Boredom, visit www.bricksbustingboredom.org or call Sarah at (954) 682-3816.
