The Salvation Army in Dover/New Philadelphia will hold its annual pancake breakfast and Easter Egg Dash on Saturday, April 16 at its building at 809 Emmet Ave. NW in New Philadelphia.

The fundraiser will benefit The Salvation Army’s youth programs, which serve children and teens throughout Tuscarawas County. The breakfast will take place in the gymnasium from 9-10 a.m., with the East Egg Dash taking place at 10 a.m. in the adjacent field for children age 12 and under. The cost for breakfast is $5 and includes an all-you-can-eat pancake bar, sausage, bacon and orange juice.

“We are very excited to be putting on this event after not having it for the last two years,” said Lt. Andrew Allen, corps commanding officer at The Salvation Army. “This annual fundraiser will help us to raise much needed funds for many of the youth programs that we run here at The Salvation Army. From archery equipment, to craft supplies, to assisting with costs associated with youth group outings, funds that we raise can go a long way towards impacting the lives of the young people that we serve.”

The pancake breakfast is one of The Salvation Army’s efforts to return to some semblance of normalcy after over two years of restrictions.

Adult ministries and Bible study are offered every Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. for those 18 and older. Youth programs are offered on Wednesdays and Thursdays free of charge. Youth group takes places every Wednesday for grades 7-12 while children in pre-k through sixth grade are welcome to attend the CrossTrain Youth Program every Thursday.
