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. This year's Candy Cane Corner store location is to be determined. To view our current needs list please click on the link below.
Candy Cane Corner will be open December 1 - December 23, 2018

The Road Home's 2018 Holiday Mediathon will be December 20th - 21st, 2018. Local media stations broadcast live from our Salt Lake Community Shelter and will encourage listeners to donate in-kind items or make a financial contribution. Sponsors will be matching the financial contributions so listener's $1 turns into $2! The donations collected during this lively event helps us provide emergency shelter, supportive services, and housing programs year-round.
You can help by volunteering from December 20th - December 23rd, by helping us collect and sort donations that come into The Road Home's Salt Lake Community Shelter or Midvale Family Resource Center. To volunteer during our Holiday Mediathon, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteer sign ups will be open December 3, 2018.
*NOTE: We ask that volunteers not park in the Rio Grande Parking lot. For parking instructions please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com.
Large groups welcome.
No age limit for volunteers.
Each holiday season we make gift bags to give every man in our shelter programs. This year, we will be handing out approximately 700 Holiday bags, but we will take any number and combination of items and/or bags that you can provide.
Each bag includes:
We ask that the items be put in pillow cases, labeled as "Men's," and tied at the top with ribbon or string. Groups can decide on how many bags they can do (5, 25, 50, etc.). We ask that bags be delivered by December 14th. If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or click here to sign up.

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 General Needs List and Urgent Needs List please visit the link: /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.
