After she left an abusive marriage, our founder Deidre Garoutte, had to make a tough decision...buy a birthday cake for her child or pay a bill. Birthdays are very special so she didn't want her child to not have a cake after the ordeal they had been through two months earlier.
Everyone enjoyed the yellow Spongbob cake
While Deidre was able to find shelter outside of a domestic violence shelter she did utilize their services. Her mission is make sure children in domestic violence shelters don't miss their birthday, and their mothers don't have to worry about making a choice. The two shelters she utilized during her journey were the first two shelters she introduced to Coins For Cakes.
