STEAC 2019 Holiday Program

On Saturday, December 7, STEAC was once again able to bring holiday cheer to more than 400 individuals and families in Davis through its annual Holiday Program, thanks to a generous community effort from adopters, donors, volunteers, and local organizations.

The distribution day was a festive event with music and Santa Claus handing out candy canes. In addition to receiving food and gifts from their adopters, families were able to select coats, children's books, knitted hats, handmade blankets and stuffed toys.

There are so many organizations and individuals to thank for their contributions to this annual event.

First on the list is Kelly Coleman, our volunteer Holiday Program Chairwoman, who spent at least the past two months immersed in coordinating every aspect of this event. She did a fantastic job doing it all for the first time, and we hope she will return for the 2020 event!
