Why five bake sale locations? The community response to Austin Bakes for Japan has been huge! We’re 80 volunteer bakers and several business partners strong. Plus, we’re still accepting donations of baked goods, volunteer help, and business support. By spreading out across Austin, Austin Bakes for Japan will give everyone a chance to pitch in and raise money for a great cause.

All five bake sale locations will be open from 10 AM to 2 PM on Saturday, April 2nd.  The west Austin location, The Shops at Mira Vista, will be having a Community Block Party that day until 5 PM, so we’ll keep our tables open there as long as the party’s going. Proceeds from sales at all locations will go to AmeriCares’ work in Japan. We’ll also be accepting donations online at our FirstGiving page before, during and after the sale.
