Today is Kiwanis Peanut Day! Since 1951, Chicago clubs have been handing out peanuts to passers-by to support charitable causes. Nationally, over $60,000,000 has been raised over the past 54 years. Every cent of the contributions Kiwanis received today (save the wholesale price of the peanuts) will be used by local Kiwanis clubs for their charitable programs which include: Aid to Handicap Children, Educational Scholarships, Aid to YMCA's, Boys and Girls Clubs, and 4H Clubs. Kiwanis reps have been spotted on the corners of State and Washington and in front of the Daley Center.
