Event is Full – Kids Making Craft Kits for Hospitalized Children
February 29 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Bring joy to children in the hospital!
You can help by assembling fun craft projects that children can choose to do in their rooms at Edward Hospital or in the Ronald McDonald Family Room. The Ronald McDonald Family Room in Edward Hospital serves as a haven of respite and hospitality for families whose children and newborns are receiving treatment. Located within the pediatric unit and featuring a kitchenette, TV, shower, playroom and two sleep rooms, the space provides a home-like atmosphere, allowing families a moment to rest and rejuvenate. A representative from the Family Room will be at the event to tell you more about the room, and interested families can go to the room immediately after the craft assembly to deliver the crafts and receive a tour. This event is the perfect opportunity to practice living an empathetic, kind and compassionate life from the inside out! Not to mention being socially responsible as we care for others in need!
Putting yourselves in the shoes of the families being helped by the Ronald McDonald Family Room will leave you and your kids feeling thankful and happy that you took the time to help them through these gifts.
What to Bring
Just bring yourselves. We will provide the rest of the supplies.

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
The 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.
