Greensboro Church Flips for Habitat Humanity

Raising money for one Triad charity is as easy as a flip. 

All day Tuesday, February 12, the West Market Street United Methodist Church will host a Pancake Day. It runs from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. in the fellowship hall at 302 West Market Street in downtown Greensboro.

For one price, people can eat all the pancakes they can handle. And proceeds will help fund the building of homes by the area’s Habitat for Humanity chapter. Kerry Stevens attends the downtown church and is volunteer coordinator. She says digging into a stack of flap jacks goes a long way. “So many of us are blessed to have a warm place to live, to have shelter and food. So you’re making a big impact because you’re coming to help serve pancakes or eat pancakes and raise money for Habitat for Humanity.”

Also students at Washington Montessori and Greensboro’s Early Childhood Center will eat free. And for those of us watching our calorie intake, Stevens suggests purchasing a ticket that will be held for First Responders and law enforcement officers in Greensboro and Guilford County. If they show up in uniform, they get a free breakfast. This is the 11th year for the all-you-can-eat event. 

Tickets for adults are $5.00 and $3.00 for children 12 years and under.
