Kindness Kits for the Homeless
March 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Care for those in need by making kits to share filled with kindness and love
It’s always a good time to care for others, and this can be especially true during colder months. At this hands-on virtual event, we will learn about empathy and how we can use this skill to help others meet their basic needs. Then, together we will make and fill Kindness Kits with small gifts to be donated to adults and kids in need.
Character Trait: Empathy
Social Cause: Meeting Basic Needs
Nonprofit Partner: Catholic Charities – Diocese of Joliet
Note: We will continue to monitor local COVID-19 guidelines and mandates and when possible, we will host Inside Out Club events in person. If you are signed up for a virtual event and it switches to in person, you will be provided a two-week notice as well as a choice of attending in person or receiving a refund.
Until then, our virtual volunteer events have been designed to provide your family with an easy yet still meaningful way to give back right from home. We’ll have your supplies ready-to-go for pick-up before the event (see below for details), we’ll all learn from each other as we develop character together, and we’ll walk your family through each step of the project just as if we were in the same room.
Sign up below – space is limited! You must register to reserve your spot(s). If you are unable to afford the $10/child registration fee, please select the fee waiver option at the end of this form.
PICK UP SUPPLIES
Supply pick-up will be at the Inside Out Club Executive Director’s house, 1109 Monterey Ct., Naperville, starting at 8 am the Friday before the event. You will receive an email if the day/time changes.
The Zoom link will appear on this event page 15 minutes prior to the event start and will also be emailed to you. If you’re having trouble locating the link, please call Lauren at 630-605-4011.
DROP OFF SERVICE PROJECT
By Wednesday following the event, please drop off the gifts you’ve made to be donated. You’ll bring these to the same location you picked up the supplies and leave them on the porch – 1109 Monterey Court in Naperville.
SEE YOUR IMPACT
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, we will send you a recap to experience this last step of giving back with your family.
Please note: Events require registration of three or more families. 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.
We look forward to living inside out with you!
