Kiwanis logoThe 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.
