Lights & Locks Event

Practice empathy alongside your child while supporting those in need.

DuPage Pads is on a mission to end homelessness in DuPage County. One of the many ways that DuPage Pads help their clients is to give them bikes. They have shared with us that they do not have enough bike locks or lights. Did you know that if you ride a bike at night, you can get a ticket? We want to make sure everyone is safe on their bikes and can keep their bikes safe by locking them up.

At this exciting event we will:

  1. learn about homelessness in our community and how DuPage Pads is helping the homeless
  2. gift wrap bike locks and lights for children and adult
  3. make cards to go with our gifts
  4. decorate placemats for DuPage Pads’ overnight shelter sites

As we approach bike season, help us make it safe and fun for everyone!

About the club

I Support Community’s Inside Out Club is on a mission to develop kids with character inside and out: Kids that work well together, include others, keep trying if they fail, can imagine what it’s like to be someone else, know themselves inside and out, are curious, thankful and kind, and support the community. Can you imagine if every child grew up believing and living their lives this way?

Our vision is a community filled with empathetic and engaged community contributors for generations to come. We believe the more children and families that participate in the Inside Out Club, over time, will make this vision come true. Thank you for being a part of it! The Inside Out Club (https://www.isupportcommunity.org/inside-out-club/) is on the weekends, in schools and online.

We are a not for profit funded through grants, fundraising events, corporate sponsorship and individual donations. If you’d like to make a donation, please click here.
