We need your help to ensure a successful toy distribution event this year! When families struggle to pay basic expenses such as rent and utility bills, the little things that bring joy to children are often the first to get cut out of the budget. With your help we can bring happiness to over 500 kids this season!

For Amazon and Target you can buy your holiday toy donation online and have it sent directly to STEP!

Thank you for your generosity!

Please drop off donations during our regular open hours at the back of the building. Pull up in the alley and ring the doorbell. A volunteer will answer, take your donations, and provide you with a receipt. Donations left outside the building when STEP is closed will be considered dumping and be referred to law enforcement. Food, clothing, and other donations are vital to STEP’s mission.
