IHOP is Offering Free Pancakes to Honor National Pancake Day.
Monday, February 4, 2013
IHOP will give every person in America a free short stack of pancakes to celebrate National Pancake Day, but to consider helping a few children in the process.
Tuesday is National Pancake Day and to celebrate, the International House of Pancakes (IHOP) is offering every person in America a free short stack of its signature buttermilk pancakes for free, from 7 a.m. until 10 p.m. The popular breakfast restaurant has celebrated National Pancake Day since 2006 and in the past seven years has raised nearly $10 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates.

Patch editors in the St. Louis area cleaned, organized, sorted, wiped, hugged and played at the St. Charles location for the St. Louis Crisis Nursery. The Crisis Nursery's mission is to prevent child abuse by providing temporary housing and care for young children in order to give their parents and caretakers the space and time needed to resolve crisis.

Employees help out, and you can, also.
It's been said it's far better to have a neighbor who's near, than a brother who's far away, but in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, Americans across the nation have proven to be the best neighbors and the strongest of families. This past weekend, AOL and Patch employees took an opportunity to pitch in, packing two tractor trailers worth of food, water and supplies in Dulles, VA, and Baltimore. The donations are headed to Hurricane Sandy ravaged areas in New Jersey and Long Island. Want to join the relief efforts? Click here to donate. "When a catastrophe of this size hits, we all feel it, both the hundreds of us who live in the impacted towns, and our colleagues who are watching and wishing they could help more," said Patch Chief Content …
