Birthday Cakes 4 Free Montgomery County Chapter (BC4F) was founded by Allison and Robert Wachen in 2015. Its mission was to bake and deliver birthday cakes for underprivileged children and seniors. The charity allowed the Wachens to combine their passions for baking and community service. In the beginning, BC4F was comprised of the Wachen’s cousins and friends, and the charity donated only 10-15 cakes a month to a few charities. At the outset, it was difficult to find charities willing to accept cakes and volunteers. With perseverance and the Wachen’s infectious enthusiasm for the organization, the charity expanded to more charities, donated more cakes, and recruited more volunteers. When Allison (the original president) and the original officer team graduated in 2018, the organization had several hundred volunteer members, and had donated over 2000 cakes to eighteen charities. BC4F will continue to donate cakes under the leadership of co-presidents Robert Wachen and Sawyer Steinmiller and its talented officer team and executive board.
