Volunteers play an important role at Candy Cane Corner, helping us store donations, stock the store, wrap gifts and keep the store running. Volunteering at our holiday store is a great way to get in the spirit of the season and help people in need.

This year’s Candy Cane Corner will be located on the corner of 400 S and 300 E in Salt Lake City, in what used to be the Barnes Bank building. Please enter the building from the entrance on 400 S. Parking for volunteers is located just to the east of the building on a small side street called Blair Street. You may access Blair Street from 400 South – at the end of the street is a parking lot with signs designating it for Barnes Bank and Salt Lake Roasting Company, you may park anywhere in this lot. Please DO NOT park in the several parking spots along Blair Street, please pull all the way through the street to this parking lot instead.
