Carpinteria IHOP's caring goes beyond Free Pancake Day

Bravo to the amazing general manager at IHOP, 1114 Casitas Pass Road in Carpinteria! Mr. Kelly Urquhart was captured in a photograph visiting with a homeless man outside the restaurant, bringing him a little dignity and understanding through a free cup of coffee, pancakes and conversation. (The photo has since gone viral on local social media.)

At Cottage Health, we’ve known for a long time that Kelly has an incredible heart and great compassion for others. Every year this Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partner raises money to improve the lives of sick and injured kids through IHOP Free Pancake Day (held the second Tuesday of March).

This is not the first person in need that Kelly has helped and we know it won’t be the last. Thank you for being you, Kelly!!! 👏💙👏
