National Pancake Day brings donations to children's hospitals

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Tuesday’s messy weather didn’t stop some from celebrating National Pancake Day.

To mark the occasion, IHOP is serving up free short stacks all day, until 10 p.m. In return, guests are asked to consider leaving a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

This year's goal is to raise $3 million dollars for hospitals and charities like James and Connie Maynard Children's Hospital at Vidant Medical Center.

Sharhonda Hollis used to work at the hospital, and knows firsthand that donations like this go a long way.

"They're sick. Everybody needs help. Look at the economy," said Hollis. "Everybody that can get help and it's coming from a place like IHOP, that's good."
   

Since the Pancake Day celebration began nine years ago, IHOP has raised nearly $13 million to support children's charities.
