Kiwanis Peanut Days will be conducted on Friday, September 28 and Saturday, September 29 in Des Plaines. Volunteers will be at local intersections and participating businesses to ask for donations from the community. They will give out bags of peanuts in appreciation for the community’s support.
One hundred percent of the net proceeds received from residents and businesses are shared by the Des Plaines Kiwanis Foundation with organizations in the community, including the Self-Help Food Pantry.
The Kiwanis Club of Des Plaines was chartered 72 years ago as a member of Kiwanis International, a global organization of members of every age who are dedicated to changing the world, one child and one community at a time.
Meetings are held on Tuesdays at 12:15 pm at the Elks Club, 495 Lee Street. New members are always welcome.
