"Nickels For Nepal" Benefit Pancake Breakfast To Be Held Nov. 3

Monday, October 15, 2018

Nickels for Nepal will host a Benefit Pancake Breakfast at Applebee’s Northgate on Saturday, Nov. 3.  Gamma Chapter members of Kappa Kappa Iota (professional organization of educators) and Chattanooga Nepali Association volunteers will serve pancakes from 7:30-9:30 a.m. There will also be items for sale, such as Nickels for Nepal coloring books, t-Shirts and items from Nepal.  Donation tickets are $10 per person and are available at the door. 

Chris Hockert, board chair of Nickels for Nepal, a non-profit based in Chattanooga, states, "Nickels for Nepal has a team of volunteers in Kathmandu, Nepal lead by Mr.

Nawaraj Baskota, principal of Kavya School, New Baneshwar, Kathmandu, who locally purchase and deliver school supplies and uniforms, and provide educational scholarships, teacher resources and facilities support to school children in the remote villages. Without support from Nickels for Nepal, many children would not have required uniforms to attend school and remain in school. They would also not have any school supplies or an opportunity for educational scholarships.”
