STEP of WNC – 2020 Grant

STEP provides home repair and firewood for low income, elderly, and the disabled. Sadly, some of the homes in our area are not habitable and the living conditions are inhumane. The lumber and home repair provided by our $10,000 grant to STEP will improve the living conditions of our neighbors who are most in need of sound environments to live and raise their children.
