Donations from free IHOP short stack helps Shriner's Hospital for Children

LAWTON, OK (KSWO)- What better way to celebrate National Pancake Day than getting a free short stack from IHOP?

IHOP is giving away pancakes for a good cause. In exchange for a free short stack, you are urged to donate to one of their charitable partners. The IHOP in Lawton decided to donate to Shriner's Hospital for Children.

The goal is to raise $3.5 million throughout IHOP's across the country to benefit their communities.

"We believe in giving back to the community and helping out in the Shriners is the organizations for us because all the money we get stays local and you never know when your family or friends will be in need, and they will be there for them,” said Lori McLain, the general manager.

The giveaway started this morning at 7:00 a.m. and will conclude at 7 o'clock this evening. So why not have breakfast for dinner and donate to a good cause!
