IHOP is giving away a free short stack of pancakes Tuesday to celebrate National Pancake Day and to raise money for charity.
Customers are encouraged to make a voluntary donation for the pancakes. IHOP’s National Pancake Day effort has raised $8 million since 2006. Last year the chain served up 4 million free pancakes and raised $2.5 million for charity.
The money raised in West Virginia will benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ program at West Virginia University Children’s Hospital.
You can get a free short stack of pancakes until 10 p.m. Tuesday night.
