Help us spread love, joy and frosting as a volunteer baker! For Goodness Cakes works with foster agencies and care homes to match volunteers to bake and deliver birthday cakes to disadvantaged youth and young adults in many locations across the US. We are looking for volunteer bakers to join our Sprinkle Squad of intrepid bakers to help put smiles on a childメs face. The opportunity is flexible around your schedule, whether you can commit to one cake a year or fifty. You donメt have to be a master cake decorator to help out, even a simple cake can make the day sweet! These children and young adult's lives when we connect with them are centered around fixing their immediate traumas - be it neglect, poverty, or abandonment.

For Goodness Cakes presents a unique opportunity to help give them the chance to disconnect from that trauma, and give hope in the world around them. It produces such an incredible impact from a small effort that almost anyone can join and give back around their own busy schedules. Check out our website at the link below to take our online orientation and begin baking cakes! This training is mandatory for all volunteers, and there are zero exceptions. You'll learn about how we work, what to expect from your volunteer experience, and all about food safety - because that's our number one priority! When you become a volunteer you'll be baking out of your own home, choosing cakes to bake and deliver around your own schedule, so it's imperative you understand the risks and liabilities. Keep in mind that you must be at least 18 years old, are able to make deliveries in the County you provide, and you must pass with a 90% or more within two attempts. Baking with us is not a group activity and we ask that you sign up with our organization as an individual.http://www.forgoodnesscakes.org/volunteer/

Hope to see you on the Sprinkle Squad soon!
