The Coast Mountain College Foundation served up pancake breakfasts at the Terrace campus Tuesday morning, to coincide with international "Giving Tuesday".

Foundation Administrative Assistant Stefanie Pellegrino says the $1725.95 raised from the breakfast will go to help the college's students.

"It's going to go towards financial aid for students, or capital projects or program expansions -- at the end of the day everything goes back to making sure our students have a great educational experience, whether that's through the equipment and building they need, the programs they need or the financial aid and awards that they receive," she explained.

"GivingTuesday" is a global movement to counteract the consumerism of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

It's meant to be a day dedicated to giving back to communities -- -- and with that in mind, some well-known Terrace community members helped out on the serving line -- including Mayor Carol Leclerc and RCMP Constable Crystal Evelyn.

"Yeah I was in charge of the bacon which happens to be one of my favourite breakfast foods, so it was tempting not to dip in and eat it but we show restraint as police!" she laughed, adding "it's a wonderful event, if you look around you'll see there's lots of families here, lots of kids having breakfast, getting fuelled up for the day, it's a nice day outside too so it's a good start.".
