(Whitewater Kiwanis Breakfast Club submission) The Whitewater Kiwanis Breakfast Club will be holding a drive-by Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, May 8 from 6:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. (or until the pancakes run out). All are invited to bring their appetites and drive by the Old Armory, 146 W. North Street, in downtown Whitewater. No tickets will be sold, and people are invited to make contributions (previous tickets were $6) to help the children in our community by donating to Kiwanis.
Whitewater Kiwanis Breakfast Club President Jean Bromley said, “We are inviting the community to a drive-by breakfast featuring delicious pancakes and Jones sausages. We ask people to donate what they are able to. All donations will stay in the community to help the children of Whitewater.”
The Pancake Breakfast is the major fundraiser for the Kiwanis Whitewater Breakfast Club, which is made up of dedicated volunteers who help children in the Whitewater community and the world, all with 100 percent of funds raised going directly to projects helping improve the lives of children in the community. Each year, the club distributes approximately $20,000, with over half going to the Whitewater Unified School District, including scholarships. Kiwanis helped to build and maintain the Flowing Well Shelter, the shelter and accessible playground at Starin Park and Treyton’s Field of Dreams, the WHS football field lights and press box, as well as adopting a highway to clean up. In addition, the group donates to the Whitewater Youth Soccer Club, the Friends of the Whitewater Aquatic and Fitness Center Family Partnership Fund, the Whitewater Food Pantry, Bethel House and more. More information can be found on the Whitewater Kiwanis Breakfast Club Facebook page.
“We very much welcome and appreciate donations to help us with our mission of changing the world, one child at a time,” said Bromley.
Kiwanis is a global organization of volunteers dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time.
