Kiwanis Peanut Day Sales To Benefit Warm the Children

Stop by Stop and Shop in Middletown this Sunday 11/13/11 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and next Saturday Nov. 19th. Purchases peanuts and mixed nuts being sold by Kiwanis Club of Middletown. Proceeds go to benefit all Kiwanis projects the latest of which is the annual Kiwanis Warm the Children project, co organized with the Middletown Press.

Kiwanis of Middletown is a co-sponsor of the Warm the Children Program. Kiwanis is providing $80.00 worth of new clothing and boots for about 700 needy children this year. Last year the group raised over $50,000 through donations. Every single dollar raised is used to purchase the clothing for the children, as there are no over head costs. Staff from Middletown, Portland, East Hampton, Durham/Middlefield and Cromwell Public Schools plus Middletown’s Salvation Army, HeadStart, EvenStart and Middlesex Hospital’s Family Advocacy Program identify families with needy children. Volunteer shoppers meet the families at Wal-Mart in Cromwell and assist them in selecting new clothing and footwear for their children. Each child is allocated $80. No money changes hands; Wal-Mart bills " Warm the Children" program for all purchases. If you are able to donate please fill out the form attached and send a check to the Middletown Kiwanis : Warm the Children Fund at the address listed on the form.
During the holiday season, Kiwanis members donate their time as bell ringers for the local Salvation Army. All money collected during bell ringing goes to the Salvation Army.
Contact Kiwanis Club for more information on "Warm the Children" and their many other
