Home / News / The STEP Link. A Link Supporting Food Shelves And


When Link Support started, way back when we had just the Pink Link and the Pet Link, we never could have predicted how much help we would be able to provide others.  Recently, we met Pam H. from the STEP (St. Louis Park Emergency Program) and this has opened doors for us to branch out into helping their food shelf.  Since 1975, STEP, a community based private nonprofit agency, has been strengthening the St. Louis Park community by meeting the basic emergency needs of families and individuals in St. Louis Park.  One in ten people who live in St. Louis Park have benefited from STEP’s services, which include: emergency food provision, clothing, transportation, emergency financial assistance, crisis support, referral service, back to school supply programs, holiday toy programs, and holiday food programs.  We are humbled to have been a small part of all the good that comes from the STEP program.  Thank you, Pam!

    • ….sometimes you just need a little help from your friends, and other times you make new friends during a very difficult time.  This is what happened to our family when our son, Brett Banasiewicz, suffered a traumatic brain injury on his BMX bike on August 23, 2011.  Dustin Grice is one of Brett’s BMX buddies that reached out to us about the Link Foundation.  Jeff Troldahl, founder of the Link Foundation, and Dustin Grice designed a “Maddog” bracelet with Brett’s signature colors pink and green.  The Link Foundation sold many bracelets via the internet and also allowed us to sell the bracelets at Brett’s BMX Skate Park.  The proceeds went to Brett’s mounting medical bills.  Brett was able to obtain the best care in the United States that also included hyperbarics.  Brett had to relocate to Texas because the state of Indiana is not licensed to administer hyperbarics  for TBI’s..
