To help fund Glenwood’s incredible work, Glenwood’s Pecans for Autism have been a holiday staple. This is a vital fundraiser to support life-changing services to so many in our community.

Since 1976, nearly as long as Glenwood’s been in existence, we’ve held an annual Pecans for Autism sale that takes place during the holiday season. This year’s sale kicks off November 1st and offers delicious items that make perfect seasonal gifts.

“This is Glenwood’s oldest and best-known fundraiser. We start getting calls in August with customers wanting to know when our pecans will be available for sale. The funds raised from this sale will be used to benefit Glenwood’s programs and services for children, adolescents, adults and families affected by autism and other behavioral health needs.” 

Shanda Daniel, Special Events Manager, Glenwood

We sell only the freshest “first shake” pecans from southern pecan farms. Our pecan halves are mammoth-size, the biggest and best-tasting available. Shop our pecan halves by the pound, or we offer a variety of specialty items including Pecan Brittle, Pecan Tarts, Pecan-flavored Coffees, assortments and more.

Each year, the Pecans for Autism sale has continued to grow. If you’ve ever wondered just how many bags of nuts people consume during the holidays, here’s a general idea: In 2021, Glenwood sold over 32,000 pounds of plain pecans. We sold over 16,000 bags of specialty items like candied pecans. Talk about a lot of nuts!
