|2009 Peanut Sales|
Members of the Kiwanis Club of Merrillville have been devoting much of their free time, talent, energy, and resources to help make their community, state, and world a better place for children.
The Kiwanis Worldwide Service project to eliminate Iodine Deficiency Disorders has reached millions of children. Riley Hospital in Indianapolis has built a helicopter pad due to Kiwanis donations. Locally, our club has given a scholarship to a Merrillville High School senior, donated to Merrillville High School’s Key Club and STAND (Socially Together/Naturally Diverse), contributed to the Boy and Girl Scouts, provided funds for Merrillville elementary student’s Embryology project and Dictionary project, Meals on Wheels, and 4-H Leadership Training. Children are our number one priority!
We would like to do much more. Our major fundraiser is selling peanuts. All, yes, 100%, of the proceeds of Kiwanis Peanut Day sales, after the cost of the peanuts, goes directly into community needs. Won’t you please help us? The cost of a box of peanuts is $35.00; the cost of a 16 ounce tin of cashews is $20.00; and the cost of a 12 ounce of Honey Roasted Peanuts is $6.00.
