Annual Pancake Benefit

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) The Perfect Fit Foundation held it's annual pancake fundraiser Thursday morning.

For seven dollars a plate guests were served fresh hot pancakes, a breakfast sausage, and a beverage.

The Perfect Fit Foundation was created to provide uniform school shoes for boys and girls in need.

Leaders say thousands of CenLa school children have benefited from the Perfect Fit Foundation.

"Teachers have had to buy pencils and belts and coats and shoes. I can not take care of all that other stuff but I can take care of the shoes. Since my daddy's passing six years ago we have given six thousand five hundred pairs of shoes to date," said Willie Harp.
