The Kappa Sigma Fraternity at Washington College, Chestertown MD, has a long and proud tradition of supporting veterans’ charities, primarily through its semi-annual charity pancake breakfast. Now it its 16th year, this event has raised nearly $70,000 for the Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign – a composite charity serving the medical, psychological, physical, and housing needs of America’s veterans – one pancake at a time.
Chestertown resident and veteran of 138th Aviation Company (RR) says, “My wife and I have been attending every Kappa Sigma pancake breakfast since 2009. Not only do the Kappa Sigma Brothers make excellent pancakes, but also great tasting sides, making it a complete and filling breakfast. All of their proceeds go to veteran support organizations, and as a Viet-Nam veteran myself, I am proud to support the Brothers of Kappa Sigma by eating their pancakes, ”
This semester’s pancake breakfast will be held on Saturday 3 December 8am-12pm at The Presbyterian Church of Chestertown (905 Gateway Dr, Chestertown). A donation of $5.00 – 100% of which goes to charity – gets you all-you-can eat pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon, juices, and coffee. Tickets are available at the door.
The Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign supports a suite of veterans’ charities, including Homes for Our Troops, a charity fighting the plight of homelessness among our nation’s veterans, Veterans Moving Forward, which provides service dogs, facility dogs, and emotional support dogs to veterans with physical and/or mental health challenges at no cost to the veteran or their family, and Veterans Success Resources Group, a nonprofit organization dedicated to facilitating access to professional and personal resources and networking for Veterans and their families.
