Stockings for the Troops
November 3 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Let’s make stockings for our active military and fill them with supplies!
At this hands-on Inside Out Club event, kids can sew a stocking for a service person and fill it with care-package items. We’ll donate the stockings to Operation Support Our Troops (OSOT), which supports soldiers and veterans and is based in DuPage County.
Just in time for Veterans Day, this event will help children appreciate the men and women of our armed forces.
What you need to bring
Each child should come with a couple donation items to go into the stockings:
- Flat ornaments
- Chocolate bars
We’ll provide the sewing supplies, fabric and instructions to assemble the stocking.

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.
