Who doesn't love breakfast? And it's even better when pancakes can support a worthy cause.

 

KidsPeace's Autism After-School Program is hosting an Applebee's Flapjack Fundraiser on Saturday morning at the restaurant at 2109 Motel Drive in Bethlehem. Come out between 8 and 10 to help raise money for the program.

 

Tickets are $5 per person and can be purchased from Alexis Harvey at alexis.harvey@kidspeace.org. All proceeds will be used to purchase new gym equipment and other curriculum materials.

KidsPeace children benefit from elementary school girl's generosity

An 11-year-old Pennsylvania girl has already learned the joy of helping those in need.

 

When Jennifer Clifton, of South Whitehall Township, was planning her birthday party for earlier this month, she decided to ask her friends to donate to the children at KidsPeace in lieu of giving her presents.

 

The response was overwhelming, with $150 and two boxes of books collected for children on the Orchard Hills campus. One of her friends, whose mom used to work at KidsPeace, even wrote a personal note to accompany her gift.

 

Jennifer's mom, Gina Clifton, said her daughter has a history of helping organizations such as Goodwill and Children with Diabetes, and she also volunteers at school.

 

"She enjoys helping others," Clifton said. "But it was just her idea. It was the children and families who attended her party who really helped."

 

Though she has never been to our campus, Jennifer and her family feel a connection here. When she was 3, she was with her father when they were in a bad car accident. A KidsPeace employee donated a carseat since hers could no longer be used.
