ENGLEWOOD - The International House of Pancakes (IHOP) did its part to celebrate National Pancake Day.

The company offered each guest a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes for visiting its participating restaurants today.

In exchange for the free pancakes, IHOP asked that customers consider leaving a donation for children’s hospitals or other local charities.

Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised more than $10 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates.
