We are excited to announce that the Granite Education Foundation has generously donated a building for this year’s Candy Cane Corner! This year’s building is located on 3305 South 500 East, Salt Lake City. We will be opening the building and accepting donations there starting Monday, November 30, 2015 at noon.
Please DO NOT drop off donations at this location prior to November 30, 2015 as there will not be anyone there to accept them. Prior to November 30, 2015 donations can be dropped off at The Road Home, 210 south Rio Grande Street, Salt Lake City, Monday through Sunday, from 7am to 7pm.
We are sincerely grateful to the Granite Education Foundation for their generous donation and are thrilled for the start of another great year at Candy Cane Corner!
With 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-819-7291. Thank you!
Candy Cane Corner is closed for the 2014 season! Thank you so much to all of the volunteers and donors who made this season so wonderful for the families we serve! We look forward to seeing you for the 2015 season!
