Dallas, TX – July 16th, 2021 The Original Pancake House DFW (OPH-DFW) has partnered with UGM Dallas to send children living in homeless shelters back to school with brand new school supplies. When Guests perform a good deed by donating supplies, OPH-DFW will return the good deed with 10% off breakfast and lunch orders. OPH-DFW will be collecting backpacks, lunchboxes, notebooks and other critical supplies beginning July 19th through August 10th at all 7 OPH-DFW locations.

The Schoolhouse Connection noted that homelessness creates significant barriers to academic success resulting in graduation and proficiency rates for homeless students significantly lower than economically disadvantaged students. Homelessness leads to chronic absenteeism that results in children falling behind. Click for Photos

“Education is one of the most important factors for kids to succeed,” said Mark Davis Bailey, Co-Owner of The Original Pancake House DFW. “We believe this school supply drive will provide homeless children around DFW the tools they need to help them succeed this school year.”

“The Original Pancake House DFW has been one of our best community partners,” stated Bruce Butler, CEO of UGM Dallas. “Providing students with supplies allows them to confidently enter the classroom prepared to do their schoolwork.”

OPH-DFW is excited about sharing this campaign with their Guests and look forward to serving them soon. The tenacity and perseverance demonstrated by OPH-DFW during the pandemic to keep their doors open and their Associates employed, and the loyalty of their Guests exemplify what can happen when a community comes together.
