Cake4Kids

Calling all home-bakers in Alameda County! Cake4Kids needs volunteers in the community to bake and deliver birthday cakes, cupcakes and cookies, bars or brownies for underprivileged youth, ages 1-24. How does volunteering work? All volunteers must be 16 or older to volunteer If 16-18, you must volunteer with a parent or guardian No minimum commitments - you choose how often you want to volunteer Volunteers must bake and deliver Sign up from our online calendar (based on theme, type of dessert requested, delivery date/time and address) Bake in your home Deliver the finished sweets to the agency who placed the request, located in Oakland, Hayward, Berkeley and more All deliveries are Monday-Friday during business hours Our volunteers never meet the children we support, but every cake is custom-made especially for each child 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." Ready to become a volunteer baker?
