MAKE THE HOLIDAYS SHINE BRIGHT FOR FAMILIES LIVING IN HOMELESS SHELTERS AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SAFE HOUSES

Candy Cane Lane 2021 was a happy time for all, thanks to our caring community of donors, volunteers, staff, and friends. Children delighted in choosing toys as their parents selected from a full array of new winter gear, clothing, and sleepwear–for their children and themselves. Won’t you help us make Candy Cane Lane 2022 warm and welcoming for families struggling with basic necessities: food, clothing, housing and healthcare?
Your efforts will brighten the lives of countless families in need. Donations of toys and clothing will be received with joy, but the biggest gift to our families is the knowledge that someone cares.

Become a Candy Cane Lane volunteer, donor, or sponsor in 2022. To learn how you can participate in our most heartfelt event of the year, please contact alipman@thefloatinghospital.org.

Send a gift directly to Candy Cane Lane! Light up the faces of our little patients with a toy or warm clothing by participating in our Holiday Drive. You can use our Amazon Wishlist to get inspired or send a gift with just a few clicks.
