Pancakes With A Purpose

 Big Thanks to everyone who came out this past Saturday to join us
at our Pancakes With A Purpose! 
We had a great time connecting with may local, Nashville area, Ordinary Heroes! 
This was a great family event, complete with Santa and his little elf. 
 Our OH volunteers prepared pancakes for over 100 people. They did a great job! 

 We loved connecting with so many adoptive families that came out to support us and eat some pancakes.

 One purpose for this pancake breakfast was to partner with Shwab Elementary, an inner city, Nashville school. We prepared 48 dinners for families in need at Shwab Elementary in the Nashville area. Each bag was complete with a special Christmas card made by all the kids who helped pack the bags. 
 The kids also made Christmas cards for children living in an orphanage in Ethiopia which will be taken over by our next team. This little cutie was adopted not too long ago, herself, from Ethiopia. She found such joy in making a card to send to the kids in Ethiopia. 
 We had our merch available for sale at great discounts. 
 These two traveled all the way from Ky to attend our event. 

 We had 48 Christmas dinner bags ready for Shwab Elementary families after our event. 
 We also had some of our OH volunteers deliver three Christmas trees to three different Shwab Elementary families. They were thrilled and they all said this was their first real Christmas tree. 
 Big thanks to our Ordinary Hero families who delivered the trees. 

 We had a great day connecting with local families, eating pancakes, visiting with Santa, doing some last minute shopping, and packing Christmas dinners for families in need. We thank you all who came out and all who gave toward the family dinners.
