There are a variety of ways to help The Road Home and the people we serve during the holiday season!
We appreciate your passion for volunteering at The Road Home. We do not offer volunteer opportunities on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, or New Year's Day.
Each December, The Road Home creates a holiday store for families in our shelter and housing programs, Candy Cane Corner. This store gives parents an empowering opportunity to select gifts for their family. We stock the store with new, unwrapped donations from our community. Volunteers are needed throughout December to help sort donations and wrap gifts. Donations of new clothing, toys and household items are needed from early November though December to stock the store. To view our current needs list please click on the link below.
Candy Cane Corner will be open December 2 - December 23, 2013
1812 South Empire Road, Suite G, Salt Lake City, Utah 84104
Volunteers are also needed the second week of January to help with store pack-up. To help with pack-up, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

The Road Home's 2013 Holiday Radio-a-Thon will be December 19 - 20, 2013. Ten local radio stations broadcast live from the shelter and encourage listeners to donate in-kind items or make a financial contribution. The donations collected during this lively event help us provide shelter and supportive services year round.

Large groups welcome.
No age limit for volunteers.
The Road Home has a variety of housing programs, including Palmer Court, our permanent supportive housing development. These programs help people step out of homelessness and back into our community. Cleaning kits help individuals and families make the transition back into housing.
Cleaning kits include:
Cleaning kits should be delivered to The Road Home (210 S. Rio Grande St.) by December 13, 2013 for holiday delivery to our clients.
For questions about cleaning kits or donation drives, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Another great holiday opportunity is to hold a donation drive. With our increasing numbers we are always in need of donations. This is an opportunity that can be done with either a small or large group, on any scale. To find both our Autumn/Winter and Urgent needs list please visit the link below: http://www.theroadhome.org/give/in-kind-donations/
Gift cards help make the season bright for families and individuals in our housing programs and at our shelter. Gift cards in $5 increments are needed for: grocery stores, gas stations, clothing stores, and restaurants.
