The St. Louis Park Emergency Program, or STEP, was honored with a $5,000 check Wednesday evening during the Timberwolves game.

STEP social worker Karen Clara and her son, Elijah, came onto the court to receive a giant check from the Timberwolves' FastBreak Foundation and SPIRE Federal Credit Union.

“We’re very excited,” Clara said in a statement. "It’s such a fun event and a great honor to be able to receive these funds to help the families."

The donation will be used to buy more than 500 toys for children from families in need.

“It’s great because sometimes the small organizations get overlooked and we all have our niche, communities we serve in," Clara said. "We’re really appreciative that they have decided to help STEP out at this time."
