Let’s fill a stocking with supplies for our active military!

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:

  1. Flat ornaments
  2. Chocolate bars

We’ll provide the sewing supplies, fabric and instructions to assemble the stocking.


We’ll meet at Naperville Bank & Trust in the community room (2nd floor) on Saturday, November 4, at 11:00 a.m. to make the fleece stockings and will learn about the role of the military in the USA.

Age guidelines / Parent participation

Inside Out Club weekend events are designed for children ages 3-12 and their parents. Older children are welcome to participate as volunteer/mentors for the younger kids. These are family events, not drop off. If you have questions about these guidelines, please contact Rita at rita@isupportcommunity.org.

About the club

I Support Community’s Inside Out Club is on a mission to develop kids with character inside and out: Kids who 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 individuals and families empowered through strength of character and volunteerism to live fuller lives for generations to come. We believe the more children and families that participate in the Inside Out Club, over time, we 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 @home (online). We offer it free of cost so that everyone can participate regardless of their financial situation. If you’d like to make a donation, please click here. (https://www.isupportcommunity.org/donate/).
