Current Events and Activities

Without the support of our friends and neighbors in the community, we couldn’t do what we do. Please consider participating in the following fundraisers and activities we have going on. With your help, we can continue to uplift those most at risk in our community.

Doorstep's Christmas Store

As with everything else in this year of COVID, Doorstep’s Christmas adoption will not be a “Store” this year. 

We are still adopting 260 Households from the Christmas Bureau which includes 800+ individuals for Christmas, and we greatly need your help with a few select donations!

This year we are all trying to work together as a community and provide for Christmas.  The Christmas Bureau and adopting agencies have agreed to provide each household at least a food order and $15 Visa gift card (no activation fee) for each household member.

How You Can Help…

 This year we only need a few things, but we need larger numbers of each.

 Money - Our Biggest Need - To purchase the food, gift cards for 800+ people, and items we don’t receive in donations.

 Blankets - Twin (40), Full/Queen & King sized (165)

 Towel Sets - Bath & Hand (130 each)

 Health Kit Items - Full Size Shampoo & Conditioner (200 each), Toothpaste (75), Deodorant (250) & Combs (200)

Doorstep's 2nd Annual Summer Cash Bash &

EnvistaCares Challenge are a BIG Success!

During the month of July we asked the community to donate to Doorstep, and help us earn match money!

YOU did and WE did!

We received $53,347.89 from donations and both event's match money!

Thank you to everyone who donated to Doorstep in the month of July!

“Doorstep feels beyond blessed by the generosity of our donors, and the community as a whole in helping us ‘earn’ these match dollars!

Our agency began in 1966 as neighbors helping neighbors, and that is still true today! When needed, people will step up to help their neighbors.

We have been quite busy, especially lately, assisting with the needs of our community during this time of COVID-19, and those who generally struggle to make ends meet. Having these funds will allow us to help more people, as we are able, in the months ahead.

We are grateful to Envista Credit Union for allowing us to be one of their charities this year, and to the community for giving to us!”

17th Annual Operation Soup Line

Thank you to everyone who supported our event!

Whether you came to the event, or ordered delivery... we appreciate the support!

We made over $18,000 on our event this year!  See you again in 2021!
