STEAC 2022 Holiday Program
~ Information for Adopters ~


STEAC's Holiday Adopt-a-Family Program provides a way for community members to support low income families and individuals in Davis during the holiday season.




ABOUT THE ADOPTION PROCESS


Community individuals, families, and groups (office, club or business) may participate as an Adopter. An eligible family, who has been screened by a crew of dedicated STEAC volunteers, is matched with the Adopter. Adopters and Adoptees remain anonymous to each other.

The matching process will begin in early November and continue to the middle of the month. Our goal is to match adopters with adoptees as quickly as possible, so as soon as a match is made, you will receive all necessary details about your adoption in email. All matching will be complete before Thanksgiving.

The drop-off dates for the food and gifts for your Adoptees will be during the week of December 5-9, 2022 at the First Baptist Church of Davis.



SIGN UP TO BE AN ADOPTER


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 soon.

If you have any questions, please send an email to holidayprogram@steac.org, or call the office at 530-758-8435.




DETAILS


The details and deadlines for taking part in the program will be sent in an email to the Adopters when they are matched with their family/families. The helpful information will include:

  • Donation drop-off dates and location.
  • A Food List of what grocery items to purchase for your adopted family based on size and their preferred ethnically-inspired food list.
  • Instructions for a Grocery Donation which is money that STEAC turns directly into grocery gift cards so your adopted family/families can purchase perishable food items such as meat, fresh produce and dairy from a local grocery store to complement the non-perishable food that you are providing.
  • A Wish List of gift ideas from each person in your adopted family. You are asked to provide one or more new gifts with a total value of about $30 for each family member.
  • A detailed FAQ list that should answer most other questions you may have.
