A Tiburon teen is collecting unused Legos and repacking them into new custom kits for underserved kids.

Charlie Jeffers, a junior at Redwood High School, came up with the idea, dubbed “Pass the Bricks,” last year. He’s since collected about 20,000 Lego pieces and has made more than three-dozen kits to distribute to local organizations that work with kids.
