Bake at home in Durham! Make a "sweet" impact on at-risk youth

Save to Favorites



Calling all bakers! We're looking for volunteers to make a difference in the lives of at-risk youth.

At Cake4Kids we bake and deliver birthday cakes, cupcakes, cookies, bars, and brownies for at-risk youth, to raise their self-esteem, deliver a respite from the hardship, and make them feel valued. And all of the baking and decorating is done by you, our volunteers!

We support as many at-risk youth as possible in the communities we serve, including those who are experiencing homelessness, victims of human trafficking or domestic violence, in foster care, refugees, LGBTQ+, and unaccompanied immigrant minors. We are proud to serve the youth in the Raleigh-Durham Triangle and need your help to make an impact!

You will love to volunteer with Cake4Kids:
- Bake as little or as often as you'd like! We don't require any time commitment
- You choose which requests to sign up for (based on dessert type, theme, or even delivery time/location)
- Bake and decorate in your own kitchen, then deliver to your local human services agency that placed the request

It's fun and rewarding and truly the "sweetest" volunteer opportunity you can participate in.

Mission Statement

What We Do: We deliver smiles to underserved youth, one birthday cake at a time. Our volunteer bakers, like you, bake and deliver homemade custom birthday cakes, cupcakes and cookies for those who are in foster care, victims of violence or human trafficking, experiencing homeless, LGBTQ+, refugees, or living at or below the poverty line. The seemingly simple gift of a homemade, custom sweet gives the youth joy and helps to build their self-esteem. It's amazing the impact a single cake can make!


Cake4Kids is a National 501c3, started in 2010, providing free custom birthday cakes, cupcakes or cookies to underserved youth. What began as the grassroots effort of our founder and some friends delivering cakes to a handful of cakes to foster children in the San Francisco Bay Area, has grown into a nationwide organization that serves at-risk youth in 17 states (and counting!). To date, Cake4Kids has provided over 50,000 cakes.

There are still thousands and thousands more youth who need our support, so let's make an impact, together!
