In 2017, when Kate, Meghan and Jack Beswick were looking for an opportunity to give back to an organization they cared about as a family, they chose to host PJs and Pancakes in the Park, a fundraising event in support of POGO. The dynamic trio followed up that inaugural event with Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day pancake boxes. They’ve raised a total of $75,000 to date and this year, their goal is even bigger! The Beswicks are back with a new PJs and Pancakes at Home box, complete with everything you need to treat mom to a delicious family breakfast on Mother’s Day! Order your box today and learn more at PJs and Pancakes at Home»
