A few months ago, we were approached by The Honorable James Hanby, Sr. a Wilmington Justice of the Peace, about a new City of Wilmington project called Pancakes for Peace. This is an exciting project that seeks solutions to Wilmington’s ongoing violence by combating some of the basic causes of it — poverty and illiteracy.
In a nutshell, Pancakes for Peace is a series of free pancake breakfasts. The first will be held today, March 1, at Bancroft School in the Christina School District, the second in Brandywine School District at PS duPont, and the third at Red Clay School District’s Warner Elementary.
In this program the students and surrounding community are invited to join us for a free breakfast, at the breakfast are volunteers from local community groups, faith groups, governmental agencies and the like to assist folks not only in the breakfast, but in getting plugged into what assistance might be available to them.
Judge Hanby brought Success Won’t Wait in very early in the planning process, as part of a children’s book giveaway at the various events. Yesterday, we donated over 500 children’s books — from pre-K to 5th grade — which will be given out to children attending today’s event.
Want to support this great program? Contact us to donate children’s books at email@example.com or contact Judge Hanby directly to see how you can help firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s give peace a chance!
