STEAC 2020 Holiday Program

So many of us take for granted that we can afford gifts and food for our families and friends during the holiday season. But there are many Davis families who struggle to provide food, heat, clothing, and shelter to loved ones, and therefore special meals and gifts can be challenging to provide. STEAC's Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program provides a way for community members to support these low income families and individuals during the holiday season.

Low income families and individuals, who have been screened by a crew of dedicated STEAC volunteers, are "adopted" by community members. Adopters and adoptees remain anonymous to each other.

Ways to Participate in the Holiday Program

1. Apply to be Adopted:


(El proceso de solicitud ha terminado
para los Adoptados para este ano.)

An online application form was available from October 26 to November 17. The number of applications were limited and processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Only one application per family was accepted.

2. Adopt a Family or Individual:

Thank you to all who have signed up
to adopt a family this year.

At this time we are very happy to announce that we have enough Adopters to cover all of the Adoptee applications.

If you have signed up to be an Adopter, you will have received or will receive the information about your family match by Friday November 20. If you haven't heard from us by then, please send an email to, or call the office at 530-758-8435.
