Event is Full – Blizzard of Kindness: Make Things that Matter Event

January 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Hey Kids, let’s spread kindness like snow flakes covering the ground during a blizzard!

At this event we’ll be getting crafty and spreading kindness to seniors, cats, the homeless and the all of our friends and family through the following projects:

  • Making snowmen door ornaments for seniors receiving meals from Meals on Wheels.
  • Creating catnip toys out of baby socks to be donated to the Naperville Area Humane Society.
  • Creating paper link-chains for DuPage Pads Valentine’s event in support of their mission to end homelessness.
  • Color kindness snowflakes that kids will take home to spread kindness to friends and family.

Through our kindness we’ll learn about being socially responsible for others and animals. We’re excited to support Meals on Wheels, the Naperville Area Humane Society and DuPage Pads through our blizzard of kindness.

Get ready for some crafty kindness fun!!

About the club

Inside Out Club DuPage (formerly I Support Community) started in September 2012 after seeing the overwhelming need for children to possess a strong foundation in character and community. Our mission is to develop kids with character inside and out.

Inside Out Club opportunities

inside out club graphicThe Inside Out Club (IOC) is designed to engage kids and families in as many of these four opportunities as possible as they practice character skills and volunteer. Working with teachers, volunteers, parents, school administrators and outside organizations, the Inside Out Club is positively impacting more than 1,400 students and their families. IOC focuses on DuPage County and its needs.

What does Inside Out mean? We work to help students develop the character skills necessary to thrive in their lives, schools, and later in jobs and community. Lessons are based on the foundations of social and emotional learning, which helps people recognize and manage emotions, develop empathy for others, maintain cooperative relationships and make responsible decisions.
