By Brenna Eller


McPHERSON, Kan. — Steps To End Poverty in McPherson County (STEPMC) recently hosted the McPherson Chamber Connection at the First United Methodist Church on April 25.

STEPMC’s purpose as a non-profit organization is to transform the lives of those in McPherson County and help them get out of poverty. The organization is made up of volunteers and partners with community leaders and other organizations, working together to find ways to help families overcome poverty. They aim to help make sure those in poverty have the essential tools including education, work skills, goals set and social capital.

Board Chair for STEPMC Monica Frye shared about the organization and introduced the new Executive Director Angela Brunk. Brunk comes with extensive experience in community service and as a USD 418 teacher and Girls High School swim coach. Frye also pointed out that Brunk isn’t a new face to STEPMC. She has brought her class to help clean up and greet people at Taco Tuesday. 

STEPMC’s annual Taco Tuesday event is on April 30 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Trinity Lutheran Church, 119 N. Elm. 

The tacos are available as dine in, carry out, or for delivery. If you want to request tacos to-go, you can fill out the form here.

Call 620-241-901 by April 29 if you want delivery or carry-out.

They are still looking for volunteers to help the day of the event, sponsors who will be announced at the event and people to bring desserts.
