COVID PRECAUTIONS & RESERVING YOUR SPOT

Because of the effects of COVID-19 - we are changing how we run the event, to ensure all volunteers and staff are safe.

We are limiting the number of people attending to 40 - and asking for you to let us know how many tables you need for your group. Tables can accommodate up to 8 people from the same party. You are welcome to stay for only 1 hour, or both. If you choose both hours, you need to book both hours.

Each table can accommodate up to 8 people, and currently we are allowing only tables to be set up. If you have more than 8 people in your party, please book another table. We are allowing 30 minutes between each session, this will allow our staff to clean & disinfect the space prior to the next group. To keep our guests safe we will have the following available.

  • Disposable face masks for each guest
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Restrooms stocked with hand soap & paper towels
  • Tables situated 6 feet apart. Each table will be reserved for an individual party to use

DO YOU HAVE LEGO BRICKS TO DONATE?*

Bring them with you! We will be collecting Lego bricks at each of our events this year.

WHAT IS HOLLIS BRICKWORKS?

During the summer of 2018, we introduced BrickWorks to the Hollis community. 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. Because the events were met with such enthusiasm, we are continuing the program and will be introducing more BrickWorks dates throughout the year. 

All attendees are welcome to bring sack lunches, and explore the trails & hills of Hollis, play a game of GAGA ball, or sand volleyball before or after the service event (weather permitting)..

WHO CAN ATTEND? IS THERE A FEE?

This is a FREE kid-friendly, as well as a kid-at-heart event. All ages are welcome. This includes preschool kiddos! Parents, please plan on staying with kids ages 10 & under.

WHAT SHOULD WE BRING?

You are welcome to come early or stay after  to enjoy a picnic or hike the trails.  If you plan on hiking the hills, we do recommend bringing bug spray, and dressing for the weather!
