The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
At Cake4Kids, we bake and deliver birthday cakes for foster children and at risk youth in Fresno County. 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.
It's easy and very rewarding volunteering for Cake4Kids. There are no minimum commitments - you choose how often you want to bake a cake for us.
If you love to bake, we'd love to have you join our volunteer team in Fresno, CA.
