Club members and Zion-Benton Township High School Key Club volunteers will be at:

  • Jewel/Osco in Waukegan
  • Piggly Wiggly in Zion

Peanut Days is one of the club’s major fundraisers, which helps to support community organizations that focus on serving children in the Beach Park, Winthrop Harbor, and Zion areas. Since June of 1976 when the club was founded, over $760,000 has been returned to worthwhile causes within Zion and Benton Townships.

You can support the Kiwanis Club of Zion-Benton even more by buying a case of peanuts from any Kiwanis member. The suggested donation is $50 per case. Click here to contact us!
