Pancake breakfast to raise funds for service trip
Jan. 30, 2013
LACEY, WASHINGTON —Saint Martin’s University students participating
in Campus Ministry’s annual mission service trip will host a Pancake
Breakfast for the public on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 8:00 a.m. to 1 p.m.
in the Norman Worthington Conference Center, 5300 Pacific Ave. SE.
Tickets are $5.00, which includes buttermilk and blueberry pancakes,
meat and vegetarian sausage, fresh fruit, and beverages, and can be
purchased at the door. Children under the age of 6 are free.
The Pancake Breakfast is an element of the fundraising campaign
for the annual mission service trip. This May, sixteen participants
will travel to the Yakima Valley to work with Migrant Farm Workers
and Catholic Charities Housing for one week. “Fundraising is important
to the success of this trip,” says Susan Leyster, director of service
immersion. “It mitigates the cost of the service trip, allowing this
wonderful opportunity to remain available to all students.”
In addition to the Pancake Breakfast, students will be selling Fair
Trade items and collecting electronic items to recycle, including cell
phones, inkjet cartridges, MP3 players, GPS devices and laptops. The
public can drop off their electronics during the breakfast and request
a donation receipt.
This year marks eleven years of Campus Ministry leading service trips
across the country. The 2013 mission service trip will offer students the
opportunity to explore the realities of poverty and immigration in America
and work for a more just society.
