All the action of LEGO Batman will come alive Saturday at the Fort Leonard Wood Exchange.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., military children can craft their own LEGO creations during a free build event at the main Exchange. Participants can also sign up for the chance to win free LEGO Batman prize packs and LEGO Batman masks.

“The Exchange will provide all the LEGO bricks needed for your little one to build whatever he or she imagines,” said David Swenson, Exchange general manager. “We can’t wait to see what incredible creations the military children at Fort Leonard Wood can come up with.”

The LEGO Batman event is part of the Exchange’s celebration of Month of the Military Child.

Help save trees

According to the University of Southern Indiana, the amount of paper thrown away in the United States every year is equivalent to about 1 billion trees. Much of this waste is from paper receipts.

To help reduce paper usage, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service offers shoppers the option to receive an electronic receipt instead of a printed one. Shoppers simply select “eReceipt” when prompted and provide the email address to which they would like their receipt delivered.

“In addition to the environmental benefits, eReceipts save the Exchange on paper costs, meaning more earnings to fund critical military Quality-of-Life programs such as Army Child Development, youth and fitness centers and Air Force Outdoor Recreation programs,” Swenson said. “The Exchange is happy to empower military shoppers to make a difference in their communities.”

The Exchange’s eReceipt program has saved more than 4.4 million receipts worldwide from going into the landfill since its launch in 2013.
