FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The American Legion Post 86 in Kendallville and Kendallville Pub held a pancake breakfast Sunday morning. Money raised from the breakfast is going to a wounded Vietnam veteran from the area as well as the Boomerang Backpacks Program.
According to its website, the Boomerang Backpacks Program is a “a free weekend food distribution program that provides students enrolled in free/reduced lunch programs a backpack filled with healthy foods for the weekend.” The program currently serves more than 2,000 students in 21 elementary schools.
“It was all you can eat pancakes. You start out with three pancakes and three sausages and your choice of coffee or milk, and then you could eat at many pancakes as you wanted to. All for five dollars.” event organizer Glen Hurst said.
American Legion Post 86 said it hosts pancake breakfasts several times a year when its members find a cause they want to donate to.
The event raised almost $1,000 between breakfast sales and donations.
