Austin Bakes to host another citywide bake sale this weekend

For the second time in a month, the volunteer bakers behind Austin Bakes are hosting a citywide bake sale to raise money for disaster relief.

In September, they raised more than $20,000 for hurricane relief efforts, but then the California wildfires hit, an earthquake struck Mexico and people in Puerto Rico continued to face hurricane-related hardships.
