STEAC HOLIDAY PROGRAM 2017


Introduction

So many of us take for granted that we can afford gifts and food for our friends and relatives during the holiday season. But there are many Davis families who don't have this luxury - instead, they are worrying about setting aside part of their meager income to purchase gifts and food for their children.



For individuals and families interested in being adopted





Here's how you can help!


You can adopt a family on your own or as part of a group, such as your office, club or business. An eligible family, who has been screened by a crew of dedicated STEAC volunteers, will be matched with you as their adopter. Adopters and adoptees remain anonymous to each other. All of the details and deadlines for taking part in the program will be provided to you on an adoption form that includes the following information:

  • FOOD - A list of food for you to purchase for your family, based on family size.
  • CHECK - The amount requested will be used to provide a gift certificate for the adopted family to use at a grocery store to purchase fresh food items.
  • GIFTS - A wish list from the family. We ask that you provide at least one new gift valued at about $25 for each family member.

The drop-off days this year will be December 5, 6 and 7.
