At the end of October, the Austin area experienced heavy rainfall that lead to flash flooding all over the city and surrounding areas. The storms and floods took the lives of at least six people and are estimated to cost upwards of $14 million. Much of this cost is being felt by the residents of Austin and Pflugerville who lost their homes. Over 450 families have turned to the Austin Disaster Relief Network for help.
We've baked for Japan, we've baked for Bastrop, and most recently we baked for West. Now the Austin Bakes team is coming together for our neighbors and baking for Austin. On Saturday November 30th, we'll be hosting a city-wide bake sale from 10 AM - 2 PM at five different locations. If you're in Austin that Saturday, please come out and join us! We'll have tasty treats that will go towards a great cause. Better yet, if you're able you can also volunteer to help out at one of the locations or even drop off baked goods. If you're not able to come out, there's also an online giving site set up for donations.
