Food Pantry

At STW, we believe no one should have to wonder when their next meal will come. That is why we are fighting hunger one meal at a time. We partner with churches and schools to provide food to the most vulnerable in our community.

Impact center schools

There are approximately 200 homeless or at-risk students in the Center School District. We believe that no student should worry about where they will lay their head at night. We have made it our mission to end student homelessness in the Center School District.
