Has the thought of a child without a birthday cake ever crossed your mind?
If you're like most people, this hasn’t occurred to you — but unfortunately it happens all the time.
At Cake4Kids, we bake and deliver birthday cakes for underserved children.
They may be in group homes, at a domestic violence or human trafficking shelter, in low-income housing with or without a parent, or even homeless. We aim to raise their self-esteem and confidence with a seemingly simple gift on their special day. It may just be a cake, but the children we bake for know that a stranger took the time and effort to do something special just for them.
Cake4Kids is powered by an amazing and compassionate group of volunteers who are mostly home-bakers. We have no minimum commitment to volunteer — bakers choose how often and which cakes they want to bake. They bake the cake at home and deliver it to one our partner agencies who support the youth.
Our volunteers never meet the children we support, but every cake is custom-made for each child and an enormous amount of love is baked into each one.
Cake4Kids currently operates in 10 counties in California and in Fairfax County, Virginia, but we are always evaluating new areas to expand into. Please contact us if you are interested in starting Cake4Kids in your area.
Since 2010, we have baked and delivered over 15,000 cakes! Here are just a few of the many special thank you notes we have received:
