FRAMINGHAM – On National Pancake Day, IHOP restaurants (in partnership with Children’s Miracle Network) across the nation will be giving away free short stacks of buttermilk pancakes (one per customer).
In exchange, customers will be asked to donate what they would have paid for their pancakes (or more!) to their local children’s hospital – around here that’s Boston Children’s Hospital.
The offer is available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Since 1869, Boston Children’s Hospital has been dedicated to improving and advancing the health and well-being of children around the world through its life-changing work in clinical care, biomedical research, medical education and community engagement.
The IHOP family restaurant chain has served our world-famous pancakes and a wide variety of breakfast for 61 years. Offering an affordable, everyday dining experience with warm and friendly service. As of 2015, there were 1,650 IHOP restaurants in 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as in Bahrain, Canada, Dubai (UAE), Guatemala, Kuwait, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Saudi Arabia, The Philippines and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Children’s Miracle Network relies on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care to support children’s hospital all over the country. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $7 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.
