Blankets for Babies
December 5, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Virtual Event: Make soft blankies for babies and toddlers in the hospital
Brighten the hospital rooms of babies and toddlers with cozy blankets that will help them feel more comfortable in an unfamiliar place. At this hands-on virtual event, you and your family will learn about empathy and how practicing it can help us to be socially responsible. Then, we’ll put it all into action by making fleece-tied blankets to be donated to the local pediatric unit.
Our virtual volunteer events have been designed to provide your family with an easy yet still meaningful way to give back right from home. We’ll have your supplies ready-to-go for pick-up before the event (see below for details), we’ll all learn from each other as we develop character together, and we’ll walk your family through each step of the project just as if we were in the same room. Register below to join us!

The Zoom link will appear on this page 15 minutes prior to the event start, and will also be emailed to you ahead of the event. If you’re having trouble locating the link, call Lauren at 630-605-4011.
DROP OFF SERVICE PROJECT
By Wednesday following the event, please drop off the gifts you’ve made to be donated. You’ll bring these to the same location you picked up the supplies and leave them on the porch – 1109 Monterey Court in Naperville.
SEE YOUR IMPACT
Depending on the nonprofit and their preferences, we photograph and/or record our donation items and/or the drop-off. After we make the delivery, we will send you a recap to experience this last step of giving back with your family.
Please note: Events require registration of three or more families. In the case that we do not have enough participation, the event will be cancelled and you will receive a full refund. Additionally, Inside Out Club DuPage reserves the right to cancel the event due to reasons beyond our control. In that case, you will be contacted in regards to your registration and next steps.
We look forward to living inside out with you!
