IHOPKC has addressed the goals for attendance improvement, family support, and staff appreciation at several of its partnered schools in the Grandview and Hickman Mills School Districts.

At Grandview Middle School, IHOPKC donated 30 turkeys to the school’s effort to bless families in their school. “They put together 70 turkey dinner meals for families in need in their school,” said Zack Nicholson, District Pastor. “At Meadowmere Elementary, we donated six $10 gift cards for them to give away as a raffle prize that rewards good attendance.”

In Hickman Mills, IHOPKC is purchasing a $10 gift card to Panera for every staff member at Compass Elementary. “We are also including a personal word of encouragement for the staff with those gift cards,” he said. “At Warford Elementary, we are partnering with Grace Point Baptist Church and purchasing $10 gift cards for everyone on staff. We will be including the personal words of encouragement with those gift cards.”
