On August 13th STEP and the Richmond Police Department will be joining forces to provide needed school supplies to 500 low income children in Gilpin Court.  The police department has agreed to provide back packs, we need your help to fill them!  There has perhaps never been greater need.  Your donation of supplies not only equips kids for success in school, it also helps the RPD foster positive relationships in the community.  Drop your donation in the collection box located in the hallway by the welcome table or bring them to the STEP office (call 804-648-7552 to coordinate a drop).  The donation deadline is August 11.th
