For Emerson Elementary Students Only: Caring for Our Troops

May 1 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm

Caring for Our Troops

Make long-distance hugs to be included in care packages to soldiers

Let’s let active military members away from home know we are thinking of them! At this hands-on event, you will learn about perseverance and how important it is in the military and in our own daily lives. Then, we’ll work hard to support our troops by decorating and filling care packages with handmade cards to be donated to our armed forces.

Character Trait: Perseverance
Social Cause: Supporting Our Troops & Veterans
Nonprofit Partner: Operation Support Our Troops

Sign up below – space is limited! You must register to reserve your spot(s). If you are unable to afford the $15/child registration fee, please select the fee waiver option at the end of this form.

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, when possible, we will send you a recap to help kids experience this last step of giving back.

Please note: Events require registration of eight or more participants. 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.

Thank you to Kiwanis Club of Elmhurst for making the Emerson Elementary event series possible. 

We look forward to living inside out with you!
