At Cake4Kids we bake and deliver birthday cakes, cupcakes, cookies, bars, and brownies to foster children and at-risk youth -- and all of the baking and decorating is done by you, the volunteers! We aim to raise their self-esteem with this seemingly simple gift on their special day. Cake4Kids supports as many at-risk youth as possible in the communities we serve, including homeless youth, victims of human trafficking and domestic violence, kids in transitional housing, and those in foster care. We are proud to bring our service to Treasure Valley, serving youth in Boise!
If you like to bake and decorate, you would love to volunteer with Cake4Kids. We don't require any time commitment -- bake 1 cake or 10 cakes a year...it's up to you. You choose which child's request to sign up for, based on the theme, type of dessert, and delivery time and location. Then bake and decorate in your own kitchen and when the sweets are complete, you deliver them to the local social services agency that requested them.
Note: All deliveries are to our agency partners in Boise, Monday-Friday during business hours
It's fun and rewarding and truly the "sweetest" volunteer opportunity you can participate in. After all - who doesn't love birthday cake?
Due to COVID-19, volunteer orientations are currently being held online.
So, get started today and register to volunteer at https://www.cake4kids.org/.
