Our Story

Birthday Cakes 4 Free, Montgomery County MD Chapter, was founded in 2015. Its mission was to bake and deliver birthday cakes for underprivileged children and seniors.  

In the beginning, BC4F, Montgomery County MD Chapter, was comprised of 4 teenage cousins - Allison & Robert Wachen and Sawyer & Summer Steinmiller - and friends, and the charity donated only 10-15 cakes a month. At the outset, it was difficult to find charities willing to accept cakes and volunteers. With perseverance and their infectious enthusiasm for the organization, BC4F expanded to more charities, donated more cakes, and recruited more volunteers.   

The national chapter of Birthday Cakes 4 Free dissolved the end of 2019. BC4F MoCo filed for our own tax-exempt status and has re-branded as BC4F Maryland as of January 1, 2020. 

Now, the fall of 2020, we have grown to over 750 volunteers and have donated over 5,500 cakes. We hope you will join our talented officer team and executive board as we continue our service work in our community!
