Volunteer Terms and Conditions

Volunteer Program

I understand that Cake4Kids is a volunteer-based agency that strives to make foster kids and at-risk youth feel special at least one day a year, to raise their self-esteem, and to increase their chance of success in school and life knowing that people care for them. The primary method of mission delivery is by providing free birthday cakes to foster care and at-risk youth who wouldn’t otherwise have a birthday celebration.
