Sharing the Joy - Holiday Relief

2015 THANK you to all who participated!

“Wow, thank you isn't enough to express how appreciative we are. Truly brought tears to my eyes.God bless you and everyone who have made this possible for our 3 children."

A holiday program that links military and veteran families who are currently struggling or recovering from financial hardship, with civilian families and corporate sponsors throughout the Southern California community. The generosity extended by these caring folks help ensure our service members, veterans and their families receive a variety of gifts to help their families experience the true spirit of the holidays. Last year, STEP and their community partners were able to give more than 500 family members something to be merry about in an otherwise bleak year.
