STEP empowers lives and restores hope. We serve neighbors in crisis with the basic needs of food, clothing, transportation, and housing.
Empty refrigerators and kitchen cabinets harms a growing child’s wellness. The lack of nutritional choices not only impacts the body, but it can represent insecurity and hopelessness. It’s a reality no child should face. Thankfully, hundreds of kitchens across St. Louis Park are now full because this community cares for their neighbors.
You have a chance to be part of ensuring neighbors’ homes will continue to be filled with food and hope. STEP is joining Minnesota nonprofits for Give to the Max Day on November 17 and we need your help!
As you read this, a nearby neighbor is struggling with hunger. Today more than ever, many St. Louis Park residents are facing the difficult choice of whether to spend money on food or rent. Thousands of kids and adults in our neighborhoods are experiencing chronic financial hardship. Many others are dealing with temporary financial strain due to the economic impacts of COVID-19.
I’m asking you to join us to respond to their needs.
Whether or not there is a global pandemic, STEP is there for our neighbors who need assistance. STEP’s mission, to identify, address and respond to the critical and emergency needs of residents in St. Louis Park, has never been more essential. As we adapt to these unprecedented times, we will continue to serve our community as best we can. While STEP has had to make adjustments, we are still providing food, emergency housing assistance, school supplies, winter coats, holiday gift cards, baby food, and diapers to residents.
With your donation, you ensure St. Louis Park neighbors don’t go without basic necessities. STEP is an independent, community endeavor—primarily supported by donations from individuals, local businesses and faith communities. The health crisis and economic crisis have upturned finances of countless community members. Life includes challenges. Part of being a strong community is to respond to our neighbors’ challenges with a helping hand.
