Community gathers for Pancakes and Philanthropy benefiting the Salvation Army

 

The Salvation Army LogoIt is not often that you can take $5 and do something that helps your community, but yesterday that was indeed the case at the Salvation Army’s Pancake Breakfast. Almost 400 people came together at the James D. Amos Homeless Shelter on Kraft Street to enjoy a tasty breakfast of Pancakes and Sausage. The money raised is used to help operate the newly built shelter, and to support other Salvation Army programs in our local area. The Salvation Army’s operations in Montgomery County require almost $19,000 a month.
