Trinity Church will hold its 21st annual Pancake Breakfast SATURDAY, November 2nd from 8:00 am to 11:30am at 11804 Hemlock Street, El Monte, CA to benefit both the El Monte/South El Monte Emergency Resources Association and the E Monte Police Department Explorer Scouts. The goal this year is to raise $10,000. Over $100,000 has been raised in the first 20 years to help people in El Monte and South El Monte. You can help.

Every year for the last twenty years the Pancake Breakfast at Trinity Church in November has been the kick off event for ERA fundraisers to help families for Thanksgiving and Christmas especially.

Trinity Church has enlisted the aide of: the El Monte Police Explorer Scouts, businesses, schools, city governments, service clubs, boys and girls club, and many other people. The dollars raised have been invested in the lives of thousands of people through the El Monte/South El Monte Emergency Resources Association. About 1,700 people are helped each month through the Emergency Resources Association, which began operation in 1956. Included among these people are: families who are sometimes in need of furnishings, housing, food, clothing, and other necessities, students who need uniforms, and less common people who need eye glasses and hearing aids.

Service clubs in the area have asked for and received special presentations so they could learn how they could be involved in this community wide event. Pastor Wayne Hoglin is available to make a presentation for your group.

The Annual Pancake Breakfast held at Trinity Church in El Monte is conducted to benefit the needy in El Monte and South El Monte. Pastor Wayne Hoglin of Trinity Church said the PANCAKE event will begin at 8:00 a.m. on SATURDAY, NOV. 2 at Trinity Church and conclude at 11:30am.

Tickets are only $5 to enjoy the breakfast. These tickets also include a $4 coupon for THE POST PIZZA which has donated the cost of printing all the tickets. Donations of any size are appreciated and can be sent to Trinity Church, 11804 Hemlock Street, El Monte, CA 91732 made payable to Trinity Church. All of the gross proceeds will be given equally to ERA and the EMPD Explorer Scouts. Fifty-five explorer scouts have committed to selling one packet of ten tickets and passing out flyers in the community announcing the pancake breakfast.

The largest donation at any one time was $10,000 from Edison and the second largest was $5,000 from the Wayne C. Clayton Foundation. The Wal-Mart Foundation has made matching funds available for the pancake event in the past which has brought in another $3,000. Steve Hake, one time El Monte City School District Board Member, brought in a check for $4,000 one year, Scott Gunderson of Scott Pontiac/Chevrolet when they had a dealership in the city made a donation of $3000 which brought the total for that year alone to $13,500. The most raised in one year was $16,220.21.

Hundreds of people attend the Pancake Breakfast at Trinity Church, located at 11804 Hemlock Street in El Monte to enjoy the great food and to lend their financial support. Usually included in this group of people are the mayors of each city, city council members, school district personnel from all the districts, police and fire personnel, members of various civic and service groups and many other people from various organizations.
