Inside Out Club Making Hygiene Kits for Local School Children

March 10 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Help children head to the classroom feeling their best by making and assembling hygiene kits!

Did you know that 1% of the students in Naperville schools are homeless, and many more are living below the poverty line? These students need basic hygiene items, which can be expensive to purchase. At this hands-on Inside Out Club event, you will:

  1. Help make a no-sew cloth bag to hold the hygiene items.
  2. Fill the bags with hygiene items (washcloth, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.)
  3. Learn about the Naperville Education and Indian Prairie Foundations and how they help families in our community.

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

What You Need to Bring

We’ll provide the supplies, cloth, buttons and the expertise to make the bags. Additionally, we will have some hygiene supplies to put in the bags. We’d appreciate it if you could bring a donation to help fill the bags. Any of the following would be greatly appreciated: individually wrapped bars of soap, washcloths, toothbrushes and travel-size toothpaste. Please no spray bottles of any kind.

Where and When

We’ll meet at the DuPage Children’s Museum at 3:30 pm and will wrap up around 4:30 pm.
