Back to school will be here before we know it. Please help us make that transition better for families in our community.
We’re hosting a school supply drive and volunteer activity with People’s Resource Center. This event is part of the I Support Community’s youth education program, the Inside Out Club, which is focused on teaching children character skills through lessons on the community and volunteerism. At this event our goal is for the kids to learn how the People’s Resource Center helps community members and how they’ve helped by collecting school supplies. This event is a great way to teach empathy and kindness to kids.
School Supply Drive from July 5th and the 28th: Please drop off school supplies to bins at all of the Naperville Bank & Trust Locations in Naperville between July 5th and noon on noon on the 28th.

About the Inside Out Club: I Support Community 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 is on the weekends, in schools and online and 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.
