DOVER – Maple Suites Senior Independent Living will host a pancake breakfast fundraiser on Saturday, May 24, from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at Maple Suites, 30 Holiday Drive, to benefit the Pease Greeters Fund.
The cost is $5 with all the proceeds helping the fund. Additionally, Maple Suites will be accepting donations for the non-profit organization in the form of cash or checks made payable to the fund.
The mission of the greeters is to welcome troops passing through Pease International Airport on their way to or from Afghanistan or Iraq, or any other areas of conflict in any part of the world; create in the Pease Trade Port an environment that reflects the respect and esteem in which they hold veterans; and promote broad participation by the public in welcoming heroes.
The fund is running low. The majority of the funds are used to entertain and feed the troops during their layover at Pease and allow the group to continue its mission.
Contact Maple Suites at 742-8820 with any questions or to RSVP for the breakfast.
