Community Breakfasts

Every-other month from September until May, the council hosts a pancake breakfast on Sunday morning from 8:00 am until 11:30 am.  This includes the annual Breakfast with Santa event.   This program is one of our most successful fundraisers and we often split the proceeds with another church organization when they volunteer to help run the event.

How you can help:

This event is quite labor intensive, but there are ways you can help out by giving only an hour or two of your time.

Setting up:  This typically starts on the Saturday evening prior to the event right after the 4:30 mass.  We need help setting up tables and chairs, collecting supplies from our storage area, and preparing the kitchen.  This normally takes about an hour at most.

Running the event: We are happy if you can volunteer for at least a few hours in one of these ways:

  • Greeting customers and collecting donations.
  • Cleaning and re-setting tables.
  • Cooking made-to order omelettes or serving eggs, pancakes, etc.
  • Replenishing the serving area.

Cleaning up:  This starts at about 11:30 am on the day of the breakfast and also usually takes about an hour.
