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 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!”
