Pancake day, but not grants, postponed

Staff writer

Although Peabody Community Foundation’s annual Pancake Day will be postponed because of COVID, the foundation still is giving away more than $11,000 in grants to Peabody charities.

Some grant recipients include the city pool, for improvements as well as free swim lessons to kids between ages 5 and 10; Peabody Historical Society, for ramps and handrails to make buildings more accessible; the Hub, for repairing its pool table; the American Legion, for a new pizza oven; Peabody Food Bank, for vouchers for Peabody Market; and Peabody-Burns school district, for Kansas Food Bank Food 4 Kids service at the elementary school as well as emergency financial assistance through Families and Communities Together.

All grants were funded by Peabody Community Foundation’s endowment fund and the Kansas Health Fund Endowment.
