Push for Pencils Pancake Breakfast

After a brief hiatus, the KidSmart Push for Pencils Annual Pancake Breakfast is back for the second year in a row! Friends and sponsors of KidSmart sweated it out with us in our warehouse for a wonderful breakfast filled with sausage and bacon cooked by our incredible board members, and coffee and pancakes thanks to Starbucks and Chris Cakes!

We had an amazing time with our corporate sponsors from all around St. Louis, from Monsanto to Midwest BankCentre! Our guests were surprised with a pop quiz to test their knowledge of KidSmart, the Push for Pencils Drive, and the overall issue of poverty and the education gap in Missouri. They were given an insufficient amount of pencils and tests, or unusable pencils, forcing them to share writing materials and finish their tests on paper towels. All this served to portray (on a small-scale) what KidSmart kids deal with everyday – an eagerness to learn, but lack the materials to do so.
