EATON — On Sunday, Feb. 26, the Eaton United Church of Christ will participate in the 27th Annual Day of Caring Pancake Brunch. The church congregation will join with over 40 other locations as they dedicate themselves to helping the needy in local communities. The brunch will begin at 11:30 a.m.
The tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for seniors or children under 12. A generous portion of Bob Evans pancakes and sausage along with juice and coffee will be provided. One hundred percent of all ticket sales go to help the homeless and hungry. Tickets may be purchased at the door.
Much like Thanksgiving where we set aside one day to give thanks, the Day of Caring Pancake Brunch has become a tradition in the Dayton area. The last Sunday in February is reserved to show that we care about the homeless and hungry. 100 percent of all the ticket sales go to help the homeless and hungry in the local communities. Over the past 26 years the Day of Caring has raised $750,000. The three main goals of the Day of Caring is raise awareness to the needs of the homeless and hungry, increase volunteerism, and raise funds for the service providers such as the FoodBank and Emergency Housing Coalition.
Those attending the pancake brunch are asked to bring a personal hygiene item such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste or tooth brushes. These items will be used by the Day of Caring Simply Essential Pantry which supplies personal hygiene items for over 70 pantries across 13 counties in Ohio.
The church asks the public to join in for the Day of Caring Pancake Brunch, and enjoy good food, with good friends for a great cause. The Eaton United Church of Christ is located at 113 West Decature St., Eaton.The Day of Caring is a 501c3 organization and is accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
