STEP is no longer accepting coat and winter accessories.

Since March, STEP’s Clothing Closet Program has been suspended. We remain committed to distributing warm winter coats to children in St. Louis Park during the month of October.



STEP’s clothing closet program is currently suspended in the interest of community health and to prioritize addressing food needs. STEP will not accept donations of clothing until further notice. We encourage you to find other organizations to donate those items, such as:

Please drop off donations during our regular open hours at the back of the building. Pull up in the alley to the red door 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.

If you have questions, please call STEP ahead of time (952-925-4899) to double-check we can fully utilize your clothing donations. Donations can be dropped off at STEP during office hours (listed on the “Contact Us” page).
