CANDY CANE LANE

We are grateful for everyone who made the holidays shine for our families.

HOPE, JOY AND LOVE WERE IN THE AIR FOR BOTH GIVERS AND RECEIVERS.

A new toy, a pretty handmade dress, a movie night for two, cuddly pjs, a warm winter coat, a crisp new book–our families enjoyed your cheer in many ways. Most of them would not have had any holiday treats if it wasn’t for the kindness of our shared community and the whole extended The Floating Hospital family.

Make your holidays bright: become a Candy Cane Lane volunteer, donor or sponsor. To learn you can participate in our most heartfelt event of the year, please contact alipman@thefloatinghospital.org.

Send a gift directly to Candy Cane Lane! You can order toys that will light up the faces of our little patients using our Amazon Wishlist.
