Ray Quinney & Nebeker attorneys volunteered their time on December 16 and 17 at Candy Cane Corner. They spent several hours cleaning and organizing the store by sorting books, crafts, toys, and clothing, wrapping presents, and organizing winter wear items such as hats and gloves for adults, children and babies.
Kristy Larsen, a Shareholder at RQ&N, was quoted in the Deseret News saying, “It’s just a way to give back to the community,” Larsen said. “This helps you keep perspective on what’s really important and not to be so materialistic.” 2013 marks the second year that the firm has volunteered at Candy Cane Corner. Kamie Brown, Litigation Section Vice Chair and this year’s President of The Road Home Board of Directors said, “It is a privilege for RQ&N to be involved with such a worthwhile endeavor. We are honored to give our time and energy to support this great cause.”
Candy Cane Corner is a collaborative effort among The Road Home, Volunteers of America, Utah and YWCA Utah. The three direct service nonprofit organizations ask the community to help provide a holiday shopping experience for the families they serve. Contributions of new gifts, volunteer support or financial contributions support its efforts. Each year Candy Cane Corner ensures that hundreds of families have a warm and full holiday season. In 2012, Candy Cane Corner was able to help 548 families including 1,312 children.
