Event is Full – Making Fleece Scarves for the Homeless 2-3:15pm

December 8 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

EVENT is FULL

Let’s give the gift of warmth and love. At this hands-on Inside Out Club event, families will make fleece scarves and handmade cards with positive messages of hope for the homeless.

This event benefits the Hesed House and DuPage Pads, nonprofits that provide temporary shelter and supportive services for the homeless in our community.

Making fleece scarves and cards filled with hope to comfort the homeless teaches kids empathy, kindness and so much more.

What you need to bring

We’ll provide the fabric and crafting supplies to make the scarves and cards. Just bring your family and be ready to make a difference in people’s lives.

Where and when

We’ll meet at the Fry YMCA Hang Out Room at 2:00 pm and the event will end at 3:15 pm.

This is a great way to build empathy, demonstrate kindness and have fun volunteering together.

Families who volunteer will leave feeling warm and fuzzy after helping make the winter a little warmer for our neighbors in need.

Age guidelines / Parent participation

Inside Out Club weekend events are designed for children ages 3-12 and their parents. Older children are welcome to participate as volunteer/mentors for the younger kids. These are family events, not drop off. If you have questions about these guidelines, please contact Diane at diane@insideoutclub.org.

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.
