BrickWorks is a family friendly service program hosted at Hollis, that helps sort & break apart donated legos. Partnering with the THE GIVING BRICK, a Kansas City based non-profit that collects used LEGO bricks,  repackages sets, and gives them children served by CASA of Jackson County. Through out the summer families joined us at Hollis to experience the joy of working together as a community to serve others.  During our BrickWorks service hours, we sort through donated LEGO bricks and break apart already assembled LEGO pieces.  

All attendees are welcome to bring sack lunches or snacks, and explore the trails & hills of Hollis before or after the service event.
