Tips for navigating the sale:
  • Bring the whole family! We are kid-friendly and parent-friendly.

  • Austin Bakes for West is a donation-based bake sale. That means instead of listing prices on each item, we’ll look to customers to make a valuation of their purchase and support AmeriCares accordingly.
  • Bring exact change for your purchases, if possible. We’ll accept cash and checks (made out to AmeriCares, please) in person at the bake sale.
  • Supporters who wish to make a gift by credit card may do so at the Austin Bakes for West FirstGiving page. Please bring your email gift receipt on paper or your phone if you’d like to pick up some items up at the bake sale as a thank-you for your gift!
  • Want to help out? Our greatest need today is for cash donations and paying customers at the bake sale.
  • If you’re planning to drop off some baked goods, please help us adhere to Travis and Williamson County health codes by wrapping/boxing/packaging your items and labeling them with their name and food allergy info. Remember, items will sit in the sun at the bake sale, so please bring things that don’t melt or need refrigeration.
