Step Back & Stockton WBB Donations Books to New York Ave School in Atlantic City, NJ

The Step Back Foundation and Stockton WBB's teamed up to donate children's books to a local elementary school, New York Avenue, in Atlantic City, NJ.  


Stockton's Kadinah Harris is a New York Ave alumn, so thought it would be cool for her to interact with her old school!

Over last year's Easter weekend (April 11th & 12th, 2020), Keenan's Irish Pub hosted over 15 virtual performances, taking in donations. Throughout the weekend, Keenan's and these bands raised over $8,000 for the Step Back Foundation. The money raised has been going towards purchasing and delivering Acme gift cards to Wildwood families. 

We cannot thank Keenan's & all of their performances enough. Stay tuned to Keenan's and their opening for the summer. 

Quick Info

2020-2021 "Live Like Bolle" Scholarship Application

"Live Like Bolle" Scholarship Fund

Our scholarship committee is pictured in this photo: Tommy Bolle, Ivy Bolle, Michael Sharkey, Mack McCracken, & Maddie McCracken

This scholarship is in honor of Mr. Bill Bolle, who unfortunately passed away in October of 2017. Mr. Bolle loved and promoted high school athletics. High school sports change the lives of many high school students by improving their work ethic, staying active, building memories, and of course, forming relationships that will last a long time. But most importantly, Mr. Bolle valued his family more than anything. All Cape May County 8th graders and high school seniors are eligible for this scholarship (two separate scholarship applications that are attached to the right). 


A huge thank you to everyone who applied for our 2019-2020 "Live Like Bolle" scholarship. Thanks to generous donations (including leftover money from Keenan's Irish Pub Virtual Palooza) and endless support over the past year, we were able to give out 20 scholarships. Our winners this past year were:

Lance Lillo, Liz Mendel, Emily Mendel, Ella McCabe, Caley Israel, Ava Vodges, Buddy Morey, Blake Rosenello, Madison Barber, Jaxon Grauel, Monica Kobierowski, Sienna Sawyer, Dani Shaw, Hadden Miller, Jaxon Tomlin, Luz Ferrer, Gabby Keoughan, Winter Favre, Mateo Perez, and Sophia Wilber.



Reach Out 

If you know of a resident of Wildwood who has financial athletic needs (basketball shoes, help to pay off registration fees, cleats, help grocery shopping, could use a winter coat, etc) do not hesitate to reach out. The Step Back Foundation is more than happy to help within means. 

Mental Health

Mental Health Matters

Throughout most of my life, I have struggled with my mental health: anxiety, depression, OCD. Even though I am extremely blessed, these illnesses still get the best of me. The Step Back Foundation is willing to talk to anyone who may be experiencing similar things. All you have to do is contact us and we are here to help. 

Changing Your Perspective 

Positive Affirmations

What It Is:
