Yes. You should try to have a minimise the amount of melting of the mild steel.

The most common filler metals for welding stainless to steel are 309L and 321L. 309L is more common. Use minimal heat. You don't want to melt the metals together too much.

Not disagreeing, but 310 will work if that is what he has on hand. I would use 312 as I have a lifetime supply of it on hand.
