Running from approximately July 17 to August 31, 2017, there will be roadwork in the alley behind STEP. This will significantly impact parking and access to the building. We ask donors to not bring clothing donations to STEP for the duration of this project. (We have enough at this time.)

Please call 952-925-4899 if you have any further questions.


For food or school supply donations, the back alley door will be inaccessible during the entire project. Donations must be brought through the main front entrance. Parking may be more challenging than usual. STEP’s lot will be inaccessible. The street area directly in front of STEP will be marked for “Loading Only.” If you wish to wait to bring in donations after the project is done, the beginning of September is a great time for us to stock up on food donations.

Parking options may include the municipal lot across the street and area street parking, including on Library Lane or Walker Street.


After shopping in the food shelf, groceries will be picked up in the Loading Only area in front of STEP. Volunteers will wheel donations to the curb. The parking lot will be closed. Clients are encouraged to park in the municipal lot across the street. The Clothes Closet will operate as usual.

Tuesday afternoon produce bags will be distributed at the front desk at the main entrance. You may wish to call ahead to check on availability.
