Peanuts 2016

We need your support for 

Peanut Days

September 22, 23, 24, 2016

The Kiwanis Club of Lombard, a 501c3 foundation, is conducting its 25th Annual Peanut Days

One hundred percent of the proceeds from Peanut Days are used to support local charitable organizations and community needs.  Kiwanis is focused on serving the children of the world. You may find us around town leading the Spelling Bee, or at the Park Districts Time for Tots, etc. In addition, our fundraising efforts share Peanut Day profits with many different organizations including:

  • The Lombard Fire Department Trauma Teddy program

  • The Lombard/Villa Park Food Pantry

  • The Helen Plum Library’s Kick-Off Summer Reading Program

  • Lombard YMCA

  • TLC Camp

  • NEDSRA and SEASPAR

  • Special Olympics Torch Run

  • Teen/Parent Connection

  • First Things First

  • Healthy Lombard

  • Scholarships for high school seniors

  • Many more worthy causes.

In addition, we support Kiwanis’ current global campaign for children, The Eliminate Project: Kiwanis eliminating maternal/neonatal tetanus (a disease that kills one baby every nine minutes), to help save the lives of 129 million mothers and their future babies.

During Peanut Days, you will see Kiwanians around Lombard (and indeed around the country) at intersections and local businesses handing out peanuts for your donations - every cent counts!  If you are able to help out, please consider supporting us and the many worthy causes above. 

Again this year, we are partnering with Operation Support Our Troops to ship cases of Kiwanis peanuts to our troops abroad.

Would you also like a whole box of peanuts OR Gummy Bears to share with your staff or family?

The peanuts and gummy bears also make wonderful office snacks or a great Halloween treat for children. 

Or perhaps consider helping to  underwrite the basic cost of the peanuts we “give away” for donations on Peanut Days by making a donation without requsting product. 

 

If you would like a case delivered, we will drop off a 100-bag carton of Kiwanis peanuts to your business address for each $55 contribution to the location you specify after the Offical Peanut Days have concluded.

For each carton of peanuts you wish to order or underwrite, please complete this form and send your $50 check to the Kiwanis Club of Lombard, P.O. Box 321, Lombard, IL 60148.  Thank you for your consideration.
