Sumner, WA – The annual Pancake Feed, hosted by the International Association of Firefighters Local No. 3520, will be held from 7 a.m. to noon, Saturday, December 1, at the fire station, in Sumner at 800 Harrison Street. The cost is a $3 donation. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
East Pierce firefighters, fire commissioners and local dignitaries will be flipping flapjacks and serving ham, coffee and orange juice. Santa will be there to meet all the good girls and boys. The event will also feature a silent auction.
The breakfast is a benefit to raise money for programs that provide support and services to local families in need. The firefighters will also be collecting donations of nonperishable food items and new or gently used coats, gloves, scarves, hats and sleeping bags.
“It’s a great opportunity to meet the firefighters and help those who are struggling this year,” said East Pierce firefighter-paramedic Rex Orcutt. He and his wife Cindy are organizing the event again this year. “Come have breakfast with the firefighters and support a great cause,” he said.
