Launching Lego

Launching Lego

This project is about working with other kids to help them build Lego creations of their choosing and assist in looking for the perfect piece! Lead Ambassador Samantha is taking on this project with her love of creativity and building with LEGO. She hopes to help sudents hone in on their building abilities and creative outlets.

Project History

This project was started by Luke who wanted to share his passion for lego bricks with others. Luke Borrero became involved in KHK after searching for community service organizations that he could get involved in. Launching Legos is Luke’s favorite project because not only is it really fun, but he gets to help out the kids with making Lego creations of their choosing and looking for the perfect piece! His favorite KHK memory is from when he led Launching Legos for the first time. He did a raffle at the end of the event but then realized that it was another child’s birthday. Luke decided to give the child a Lego figure, too, and the excited reaction of the child to receive such a present has stuck with him since! Luke remarks that KHK has taught him how to be a better leader and how to develop leadership skills, such as how to run and manage an event on your own. From honing these skills, Luke observes that he has become more assertive and confident, both as a lead ambassador and in his everyday life.

Lead Ambassador, Samantha, is taking on this project so that she can continue the love of creativity and building with LEGO. Please support her by donating your new or gently used LEGO toys. We are now collecting LEGOs at Awesome Toys & Gifts on High Ridge Road in Stamford.
