May 7th, 2013: Helping one of our own who lost everything in a house fire on 4/27/2013
One of Maine's families, a member of one of the Maine Robot Track Meet teams, lost everything in an uninsured house fire last week. We met the student at the track meet that week and heard about the loss from both he and from the coach. All of the families belongings, including all of his LEGOs, toys, and his new NXT robot kit were lost in the fire.
We are going to pull together some LEGOs from here but would encourage folks from our robot community in Maine to make a contribution of some toys or LEGOs, suitable for an FLL aged student and we will make sure they are delivered to him.
Our plan is to collect items for the next two weeks and deliver them around May 27th, 2013.
If you wish to make a donation of money, you can select the "Donate to Rebuilding" button and we will make sure that 100% get's to the family.
Let's see if we can't make a difference for this young engineer and his family.
