Stepping Stones of Dunn County
Food. Shelter. Support. Since 1986.
Stepping Stones needs volunteers for everything from stocking pantry shelves to snow shoveling to helping with special events. Did you know volunteering is good for your healthy and well-being?!
We’re especially in need of volunteers with a pick-up truck or SUV for ‘food rescue’ pick-ups (at Walmart and other local food stores) and for delivering Project SAM (weekend kids meals) bags to schools. Also needed are people to assist with receiving food deliveries in the warehouse and, of course!, overnight volunteers for the Winter Haven shelter. Contact volunteer coordinator, Jane Redig, with questions: 715.235.2920 or by emailing communityconnect at steppingstonesdc.org. You can also stop by for a volunteer application or find it on our website under volunteering.
Stepping Stones seeks to foster a community that prevents hunger, homelessness and
isolation throughout Dunn County through its three programs.
Average visits to the Food Pantry per month in 2015. That’s an average of 55 families per day, six days a week, nearly 80% of whom were living at or below poverty level.
Nights of shelter provided at either at the Stepping Stones Shelter on South Broadway, at Winter Haven, or at a local motel for short-term stays in 2015.
Individuals and families who received over $27,000 in emergency financial assistance for rent, heat, electrical bills, fuel and clothing and/or supportive services in 2015.
