What a better way to start your Friday morning off than with a nice hearty pancake breakfast while helping a great cause!

The United Way of Muscatine is hosting a Kids First Pancake Breakfast on Friday Apr 13 from 7-9 a.m. at the First National Bank of Muscatine (300 E 2nd Street Muscatine). Donations will be accepted, and the public is welcome!

Come help support the Kids First Fund and enjoy pancakes, eggs and sausage for breakfast. The purpose of the Kids First fund is to provide funding for students in the Muscatine Community School District who have a need as identified by an MCSD employee. Some of the things the Kids First fund has covered are shoes, clothing, gas for college visits, school supplies, and activity fees.

Save the date! The next two Kids First Pancake breakfasts will be on Jul 4 and Oct 26. To keep up with current events for the United Way of Muscatine, follow them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/unitedwaymuscatine/.

Start your Friday morning off right with a full belly and charitable heart.
