Things are moving right along at the Austin Bakes headquarters! Our team of volunteers is working really hard to line up an awesome bake sale location (or five or six!) where we will be able to sell delicious treats. We have also selected a non-profit organization to support! 100% of our proceeds will benefit the Austin Community Foundation’s Central Texas Wildfire Fund. Austin Community Foundation is a top-rated non-profit that’s providing support to agencies working on the ground in Bastrop, Steiner Ranch, Spicewood and other parts of Central Texas affected by wildfire.
We have set up an online giving page where anyone can support Austin Bakes for Bastrop starting now! Gifts made through our secure online giving page go directly to The Austin Community Foundation’s Central Texas Wildfire Fund and are 100% tax deductible.
Already lots of local businesses have pledged to give space, desserts, or cash in support of our cause, and so far over 60 Austin bloggers and foodies have volunteered to make baked goods for the sale. We’ll have a special page highlighting everyone’s generosity ready to post here in the next few days.
If you want to get on board and help with the bake sale, send us an email. We’re still looking for volunteer help, business partners, matching gifts, and most importantly, lots and lots of delicious baked goods to sell. We’ll have even more great news to share in the next few days as our locations are finalized, so stay tuned to @Austinbakes on Twitter for breaking news!
