Tomorrow is IHOP’s National Pancake Day! For the past 13 years on this one day of the year the International House of Pancakes has given customers one free short stack of original buttermilk pancakes from 7 am to 7 pm nationwide in celebration of flapjacks. And while the pancakes are indeed free, IHOP hopes you will donate what you can to help them raise funds for local children’s hospitals and health organizations. Donations of all sizes will be accepted, and all funds collected will stay in the community where they were raised.
IHOP hopes to raise $5 million for children’s hospitals and medical research during this campaign, while serving a record-breaking 5 million pancakes in a single day.
“For 60 years, IHOP and our franchisees have made it our mission to support the communities we serve. IHOP National Pancake Day is our declaration to pancake lovers everywhere that we are committed to giving back in meaningful ways,” said Darren Rebelez, President of IHOP in a statement.
“At IHOP, we think doing good is delicious. Every stack of pancakes we serve on our signature day counts toward helping our charity partners improve the health and lives of millions of children and families across the country.”
