LEGO® Discovery Center Boston and Boston Bruins® deliver 100 care packages to Mass General for children

Children at Mass General for Children (MGfC) had a BRICKTASTIC morning when they were presented with care packages from LEGO® Discovery Center Boston and the Boston Bruins®. In honor of the Bruins Centennial Year, the two organizations collaborated to bring 100 care packages including tickets to LEGO® Discovery Center Boston, LEGO builds, Bruins gear and more to children at the hospital.

Last month, Boston Bruins® Kids Club members and LEGO® Discovery Center Boston’s Mini Model Builders met at the Discovery Center to box up these 100 care packages. Kids Club members and mini builders had the chance to build a LEGO bear, the same build included in the care packages, with a Master Model Builder and write personalized notes that were included in the care packages.

Master Model Builder, Sean Martin, and Princess Argenta from LEGO® Discovery Center participated in the special delivery along with Dr.Allan Goldstein, surgeon-in-chief at MGfC and Sandy McGee, executive director of MGfC. Also in attendance was Bruins Foundation President, Bob Sweeney, to share in the joy with the children and families at Mass General Hospital.

“It was a special day at Mass General for Children,” said Bob Sweeney, President of the Boston Bruins Foundation. “Giving kids and families the LEGO Discovery Center and Bruins care packages brought smiles to many through an otherwise difficult time. The Bruins are currently playing in round one of the NHL Playoffs and it’s great to be able to share some of that excitement with the families at MGfC today.”
