The Kiwanis Club of La Porte will be hosting their annual Peanut Days on Friday, September 21st and 28th in front of the La Porte Post Office and Kroger from 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Stop by and meet local community members who are committed to supporting children in the La Porte area.
Donate what you can, and to say thank you a Kiwanian will give you a bag of peanuts. The proceeds from this collection go to support local programs and events.
Kiwanis Peanut Day began in Chicago in September 1951 with 8 clubs participating. These 8 clubs raised more than $18,000 in one day. Since then, over $60,000,000 has been raised by Kiwanis Clubs for their charitable projects. Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.
