Thanks for another great year!

The 2014 Candy Cane Corner was a tremendous success.   Thank you to all of the generous individuals and groups who gave their time and resources to help make this holiday season bright for the homeless individuals and families at The Road Home, Volunteers of America, Utah and YWCA Utah.

With your help, we were able to provide close to 2,000 people with a memorable holiday.  This includes 747 families with a total of 1,212 children. 

We have closed the store for this year.  We will reopen in December 2014!

Thanks again!

Candy Cane Corner is a partnership between The Road Home, YWCA Utah, and Volunteers of  America, UT. This holiday store is a great way to help make the season bright for the families our three agencies help 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.

If you are interested in volunteering at Candy Cane Corner, our volunteer sign ups begin November 1.

We hope you’ll join us at Candy Cane Corner this year as we bring magic and holiday cheer to the children, mothers & fathers we help. Thank you from the
