Candy Cane Corner is a partnership between The Road Home, YWCA Utah, and Volunteers of  America, Utah. This holiday store is a great way to help make the season bright for the families our three agencies serve by providing them with a meaningful and empowering holiday shopping experience.

Each year, Candy Cane Corner helps families in need celebrate the holidays with new gifts. Parents visit the store with their case manager and select gifts for their children and themselves. For many of the families we help at Candy Cane Corner, it has been a very long time since they were last able to shop for new clothes or toys.

We hope you’ll join us at Candy Cane Corner this year as we bring holiday magic and cheer to all of the children, mothers, and fathers we serve. Thank you from The Road Home, Volunteers of America, Utah, and the YWCA.

Looking for a 2015 Candy Cane Corner Building

CCC Logo NewWith the Holidays just around the corner, we are working hard to get everything ready for our 2015 Candy Cane Corner!  Currently, we are in need of a building to host our annual Candy Cane Corner holiday store.  Each year The Road Home, YWCA, Utah and Volunteers of America, Utah partner to create Candy Cane Corner.  Candy Cane Corner is a holiday store where families experiencing homelessness have a dignified and empowering way to provide gifts for their loved ones during the holiday season.  Last year, Candy Cane Corner helped to provide holiday assistance to 369 families, including 801 adults, and 1,785 children.

We are seeking a building that is 10,000 – 12,000 square feet to house this year’s Candy Cane Corner.  If you have a building you would like to donate, please contact Celeste Eggert at or 801-819-7291.  Thank you!
