A Springfield mosque and church will be among 31 sights in southwest Ohio participating in the 29th Annual Day of Caring 365 Pancake Brunch on Sunday, Feb. 24.
Masjid An-Nur Islamic Community Center, 743 W. Liberty St., and Central Christian Church, 1504 Villa Rd., invite the public to enjoy a meal to support local food banks. The brunch will feature pancakes, sausage, eggs, orange juice and coffee. Admission is $6 for adults and $4 for children ages 12-under and seniors.
Central Christian’s breakfast will be 8-10 a.m. and the Islamic center’s will be 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. It’s the third consecutive year both have participated.
“It’s a unique fundraiser. All the money is returned to the communities the money is raised in and there are no expenses,” said Imam Mustafa Islam of Masjid An-Nur Mosque. “It’s important in the Islamic religion to be charitable, to feed hungry people.”
