The annual Taylorville Kiwanis Peanut Days fundraiser is here once again. Kiwanis members from the local Taylorville chapter will be taking to the streets of Taylorville this Friday and Saturday accepting donations, and in turn handing out a package of peanuts for those who donate.
Will Perkins and Bill Kerns with the Taylorville Kiwanis Club appeared as guests on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show. Perkins says the event's main goal is to raise funds to benefit children in the community.
In years past the club has been able to donate roughly 80 coats to children in the community.
Kerns says the community has stepped up in other ways to support the Kiwanis club during the fundraiser as well.
Again, the Taylorville Kiwanis Club Peanut Days fundraiser will be taking place this Friday and Saturday at the corner of Webster and Main Cross Streets as well as Walmart.
