STEAC 2021 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:

To qualify, your family members must be residents of Davis, and meet the same income guidelines as the Federal Free School Lunch Program, whether or not you have school age children.
