At Cake4Kids, we bake and deliver birthday cakes for foster children and at risk youth. We support all sorts of under-privileged children and youth - they might be in group homes, at a domestic violence or human trafficking agency/shelter, in low income housing with or without a parent or even homeless. We aim to raise these children's self-esteem and confidence with this seemingly simple gift on their special day. It may just be a cake, but the children we bake for know somebody took the time and effort to do something special just for them. The children realize they are important and in turn can have an impact on the world.
We need volunteers to help put a smile on a child's face by baking birthday cakes. Our bakers are mostly home-bakers. There are no minimum commitments - you choose how often you want to bake a cake for us. It's pretty simple - a Cake4Kids volunteer baker chooses a cake theme from our online calendar and bakes the cake in their own home and delivers the cake to one of the agencies we serve. Our volunteers never meet the children we support, but every cake is custom-made specially for each child with love.
