In-kind donations to STEP help offset program expenses as well as alleviate the cost of some critical needs for our families. When we can help provide a basic necessity, families can redirect those funds to debt reduction and savings, helping them stay on the path to financial self-sufficiency. Our Warehouse on Wheels program allows families access to new and gently used donated household items they have been going without. While needs vary throughout the year, below is a list of on-going items needed annually:
Target, Walmart, Visa, Safeway, Ralph’s, etc.
