Back to School Program

STEP provides new school supplies and backpacks to St. Louis Park children whose guardians cannot afford school supplies.

STEP accesses school supply lists from the local school district and packs bags accordingly. If children attend schools outside of St. Louis Park, parents are encouraged to provide a list at the time of registration and STEP will make every attempt to accommodate this list.
