Legos for a Cause

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) – Playing with Legos for a good cause! Rebuilding Together, a nonprofit organization, raised money through a Lego construction project at Prien Lake Mall Saturday afternoon. Five different teams from various companies in the Lake Charles area signed up to build a structure they designed.

Everything from Cleaner energy resources to towns were built at the event. Jar were also set out next to each structure for people to vote on their favorite.

"Our mission is to bring volunteers and communities together to improve the homes and lives of home owners," explained Shavannah Whittaker, from Rebuilding Together, "There are people in our community that are hurting and who need your support, and why not play with some Legos while they support us."

The Lego projects were judged and the group with the most money donated won the grand prize, gift certificates to OB's Bar and Grill. Entergy won with the most contributions in their jar. If you are interested in volunteering with Rebuilding Together you can check out their web site at
