Peanut Day
September is peanut time, and ONLY September. Any solication other that September is not from the Kiwanis Club of Downers Grove. Should you encounter anyone at any other time please call 911 and report them.
We get out there and distribute those delicious
salted bags of peanuts the fourth week-end of September, but we also provide cases of 100 ¾oz bags of peanuts for a donation of only $50 per case. These make a great gift for your business or for Halloween. All profits are used to serve the needs of other citizens and to hold those needs as our number one priority. We honor those individuals and businesses who order one or more cases by listing them on the Pancake Day place mats which we use throughout the year and offer to place their name on our web site. If you would like to order peanuts by the case for the Fall, please click here to order.
