IHOP restaurants around the country will be serving up free short stacks Tuesday, March 7 for National Pancake Day.

In partnership with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, IHOP aims to raise money and awareness for the medical nonprofit.

Guests who visit an IHOP between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday will receive a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. In return, guests are asked to leave a voluntary donation for the CMN. All funds will be donated to the CMN hospitals in the communities where they were raised.

IHOP said the goal in 2017 is to raise $3.5 Million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Nationwide.
