Volunteer from home! Bake birthday cakes and cupcakes for underserved children in Sacramento

Save to Favorites

Cake4Kids

Calling all bakers in Sacramento!

Cake4Kids is expanding into Arden-Arcade and we're looking for volunteers in your community to bake and deliver birthday cakes for underserved children.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit that has been serving the Bay Area since our founding in 2010 and have since expanded into San Diego, Fresno, Napa and now Sacramento. Our mission is to bake and deliver birthday cakes, cupcakes, cookies and brownies for foster children and at-risk youth - they are in group homes, at a domestic violence or human trafficking agency/shelters, 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.

Volunteering for Cake4Kids is easy and very rewarding:
- Must be 16 or older
No minimum commitments - you choose how often you want to bake for us
- You choose to sign up for a cake request from our online calendar (based on theme, type of dessert requested, delivery date/time and address)
- Bake in your home
- Deliver finished sweets to one of the agencies we serve, located in Arden-Arcade
- All deliveries are Monday-Friday during business hours

Our volunteers never meet the children we support, but every cake is custom-made specially for each child with love and makes an impact. To understand the difference one cake can make, take a look at some of the feedback we have received:

"She enjoyed the cake with her case manager and described it as being moist and delicious. Since she hasn't been able to celebrate her birthday in a few years, she was extremely grateful for the cake."

"I just wanted to thank you for making my son's birthday so happy. I wasn't able to give him a party. I'm a domestic violence victim, a single parent of 4. My income is so low that this cake was the best gift ever to him. I made him pancakes as a special breakfast, and then surprised him with the cupcakes. Thank you so much."

Help us to deliver smiles to children - one birthday cake at a time.
