NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Shriners Hospitals for Children and local Shriners chapters are putting the word out.
IHOP's free Pancake Day is fast approaching. The Nacogdoches Shrine Club received the help of Mayor Roger Van Horn in publicizing next week's fundraising event. The Shriners presented the mayor and Donna McCollum certificates of appreciation for their contribution to the success of the annual event.
"They are concerned about unmet needs, and they are quick to rise to the occasion and they make all cities better," Van Horn said.
"IHOP gives away a short stack of pancakes, free and they ask the customer to give us a donation for the Shrine at Children's Hospitals," said Robert Parrish, a member of the Nacogdoches Shrine Club. "And it's a way for us of making money to operate the hospitals.">
IHOP Pancake Day across the nation is Tuesday, March 7.
