Get your mixers ready! We’re going to be coming together again, this time to help our Austin neighbors affected by the recent floods. Recent flooding has devastated several neighborhoods in Austin, leaving many of our fellow Austinites homeless.
Recovering these homes and neighborhoods is a huge job. Tons of debris must be removed, homes must be cleaned, gutted and renovated, and in some cases replaced all together. It’s a big job, one that will take a massive cooperative effort to accomplish.
We’re going to be raising funds for Austin Disaster Relief Network, a local organization that has been organizing volunteers, providing financial support, and collecting donations for those affected by the floods. More than 450 families have turned to Austin Disaster Relief Network for help.
The bake sale will be taking place on Saturday, November 30, from 10 am to 2 pm at multiple locations across Austin. We’ll be announcing specific locations soon. As always, we’ll need help from local Austinites to make this happen.
If you’d like to contribute some baked goods for the sale, or volunteer to help out at a bake sale location, please sign up here.
We can also use your help spreading the word about the sale. Here are few ways to help:
- Tweet us with #AustinBakes to help us recruit bakers, buyers and volunteers.
- Share our link on Facebook, or like our Facebook page.
- Write a blog post about Austin Bakes.
- Tell your friends, family, and co-workers about the sale.
- Share this graphic on your blog posts and social media networks. Be sure to link it back to www.AustinBakes.com!
