Hello STEP Volunteers - Happy Spring!!


I hope you are all having a great week!  I wanted to take a minute to go over some of the things you have helped with over the last few weeks.  Our volunteer team has helped with two Warehouse on Wheels (WOW) events, sorted, inventoried, loaded and unloaded donations to include over 200 brand new mattresses. Not to mention, wrapping bins for our baby drive, distributing bins throughout the community, working in our warehouse, picking up donations and more!!! We know your time is precious and we just wanted you to know we appreciate each and every one of you.  Thank you for your continued support to STEP and our military families.


Below you will find our upcoming volunteer opportunities, if you are interested in any of the events please send an email to tracy.owens@stepsocal.org to confirm. This will help us ensure that we have enough volunteers for each event and it will also allow us to provide you with updates should any changes need to be made.


1ST BABY DRIVE PICK UP:

Baby Drive is almost here!! The drive officially kicked off on March 1, 2020. Throughout the month of March, STEP collects baby items ranging from wipes to car seats to serve our community. All the donations are used to support our WOW program. As the bins fill up all over town, we will need your help to empty the bins and bring the donations back to our office. If you are available from March 16- 20, we would love to have your help between the hours of 10-2:00. You will use STEP vehicles for the pick-ups! We will be looking for 4 volunteers each day during that week. If you are interested in helping this week please email tracy.owens@stepsocal.org and we will provide additional details.
