PCF to serve pancake breakfast on Aug. 13

One of the 2021 Pancake Race Winners, Josh Hedrick, shows his prize.

The Peabody Community Foundation (PCF) will host its Pancake Dayfrom 7-11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13 at the Peabody Senior Center at 106 N. Walnut in Peabody. The sausage and pancake breakfast served by at-will donation is a fundraiser for PCF. The public is invited.
Young people ages 3-14 are invited to participate in the fifth annual Flippin Pancake Race beginning at 10 a.m. at Santa Fe Park. Participants should bring their own skillet and be prepared to run outside, skillet in hand. No entry fee will be charged, but racers will need a release of liability form signed by a parent or guardian; forms are available before the race. Back-to-school themed prizes will be awarded to the winners.
At 10:30 a.m., 2022 grant awards to community charities will be announced. A total of $11,800 was granted this past February to 12 organizations. The largest grant was awarded to the Peabody Food Bank, a program of Peabody Association of Churches. The grant covered two full months of food vouchers for clients at the Food Bank, according to Nathan Gift, local pastor and Association of Churches chairperson.

“It’s a huge assistance to our program,” he said.
Other grant awards supported the City of Peabody for pool maintenance and swim lessons for children, the Township Librarys improvements, emergency financial assistance, the Peabody Historical Society, American Legion and The Hub.
Funds for grants were sourced from two PCF endowed funds, the Peabody Endowment and the Kansas Health Foundation Fund. PCF anticipates making additional grants to USD 398 teachers in late November.
PCF is an affiliate of Central Kansas Community Foundation, based in Newton and serving a six-county region.
