Denison group Surviving Sisters and Brothers provides support for victims of bullying, abuse

The smell of pancakes is enough to attract a crowd, but the people gathered at St. Luke’s Episcopal fellowship hall Saturday were there for more than just pancakes. They were there to support a cause. Surviving Sisters and Brothers was holding a pancake breakfast to raise funds for their food pantry and their organization, which counsels people who experience bullying or abuse. Members meet Tuesday evenings and get involved in the community during the week with service and by promoting awareness.
