Here at The Cupcake Bar, we know how fortunate we are to call Austin, TX home. We’re so proud to live and work in a city that’s safe, supportive, and truly representative of Texas hospitality at its best.
We love helping people celebrate the most important days in their lives, but we know we couldn’t do what we do without the true heroes of our city: the frontline workers, first responders, and firefighters who selflessly risk their lives to ensure our community stays safe and healthy.
Each year, on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, we make it our mission to show our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to our firefighters by delivering cupcakes to local fire stations.
Thanks to our amazing community and volunteers, we’ve been able to grow this initiative every year! In 2017, we delivered to 12 stations; in 2018, it was 45; in 2019, we delivered to 78, and last year, we served 30 stations in and around Austin. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: our community is THE BEST, and we’re always humbled by your generosity.
As we know, life in 2021 means constantly adapting, and our local heroes are working harder than ever to keep us safe. We’re committed to making sure they know how much they’re appreciated! We’re honored to once again have the opportunity to give back with our 9/11 Firefighter Cupcake Delivery.
Help Us Give Back!
In order to stay safe and comply with guidance from local and national health authorities, we’re making a few changes to our outreach this year. Want to join us? Here’s how you can help us spread the cupcake love to our firefighters in 2021:
The Cupcake Bar will be sponsoring a donation to stations in and around Austin, and we need help delivering! Click here to sign up for a station. We’ll reach out the week before to give you final details. You’ll pick up from our headquarters from 10a-4pm on Friday, 9/10 or 10a-12p on Saturday, 9/11 and deliver them to your designated station.
Please adhere to social distancing guidelines and wash/sanitize your hands before and after your delivery.
From the bottom of our hearts,
we thank you for helping us spread a little joy to our hard-working heroes.
Let’s do this, Austin!
