Hello FLL Teams!

We are Sparky 384, a *FIRST* Robotics Competition (FRC) Team, from J.R
Tucker High School in Richmond.  We are hosting a LEGO Drive to collect
used LEGOs and FLL field set-up kits.

These LEGOs will be used to create Junior *FIRST* LEGO League (Jr.FLL) kits
for children in under-served schools/communities in Virginia.  We are also
reaching out around the world to start Jr.FLL.  Sparky is starting Jr.FLL
teams at 3 schools in Haiti.  These schools are eager to participate, but
can't afford to purchase kits.  Sparky is even sending Jr. FLL kits to

Please help us "spark" a life-long interest in Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) in young students who might not
otherwise have this opportunity.

If your FLL team has LEGOs or field set-up kits you are not using anymore,
please consider donating them.  Please e-mail us, at [log in to unmask],
if you have a donation.

NOTE:  We will have a representative at two *FIRST* Tech Challenge (FTC)
events this weekend.  If you live near there, feel free to drop off your
donations (write attention Sparky 384 on the container - you can leave the
LEGOs at the check-in desk).
