IHOP announced Wednesday it will host a $1 Buttermilk pancake event on Tuesday, May 21 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at restaurants nationwide with the full dollar going back to Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation (CFP). Coinciding with National Military Appreciation Month, the campaign aims to contribute $1 million to college scholarships for the children of servicemen and women that have passed in the line of duty. While other educational assistance programs exist for Gold Star families, significant costs often remain with many surviving families struggling to make ends meet—in fact, 63 percent of surviving spouses make less than $50,000 per year. CFP is unique in that the organization works to bridge the $32,000 gap between government assistance programs and the cost of a four-year degree program. Of the students who are part of the CFP program, 97 percent graduate from college debt-free.
