Do you like free pancakes?
Joplin’s IHOP at 21-17 South Range Line will be taking part in National Pancake Day to benefit Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m on Tuesday, March 12.
For the 14th year, IHOPs nationwide will serve free pancakes to help reach the company’s goal of raising $4 million.
The pancakes will be free.
In return, guests are asked to make a difference by leaving a donation of any size to support the hospitals of the Children’s Miracle Network.
During IHOP National Pancake Day, the restaurant chain expects to serve a record-breaking five million pancakes in a single day.
Since launching in 2006, the event has raised nearly $30 million nationally. All funds raised on IHOP National Pancake Day stay local and directly help children in need.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals provides assistance to children from birth to 21 years of age in a 14-county area in Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma. All money raised stays local, helping children with medical needs and their families.
Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals helps furnish and maintain Freeman Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, provides funding for local community organizations’ pediatric needs and provides pediatric emergency equipment for area agencies.
