Peanut Days Fundraiser Kickoff by St. Charles Kiwanis Noon Club Committee Chair Tony Savarese. Come join us for the Proclamation from St. Charles Mayor Ray Rogina at the City Council meeting on Sept 21st, 7:00pm @ City Hall."

Volunteers from the St. Charles Kiwanis Club will be giving away bags of Kiwanis Peanuts for donations on September 24–26 throughout the community. Their goal is to change the world one child, and one community, at a time. All profits from this fundraiser go to support local agencies that assist children; support national objectives, such as to eliminate maternal/neonatal tetanus throughout the world; or supporting the troop’s, wherever they serve. Last year they were able to grant over 30 local agencies, giving out $68, 000 to organizations dealing directly with children. They were also able to send over 130 cases of these wonderful healthy snacks to our troops stationed throughout the world. The St. Charles Club has a long tradition of “working for peanuts.” Since the inception of Kiwanis Peanut Days in 1951, they have been giving away these powerfully good snacks each September for the past 64 years. It is a long tradition says Peanut Chairman, Tony Savarese, “This is one of 3 major fund raisers for our Club. It enables us to achieve our commitment to our community’s youth and support our service men and women where ever they serve.” Keep your eye out for Peanut People in the upcoming weeks and know that your donation is helping so many local children!
