Holiday Adopt-A-Family Program

Believe it or not, it's time to sign up to take part in the 2015 Holiday Adopt-A-Family Program!

STEAC is committed to enlarging the social awareness of the community by providing opportunities for local citizens to help others in need.

During the December holiday season, STEAC sponsors a program that encourages local families, organizations or groups to "adopt" an individual or family and provide them with gifts and food. All adopters and adoptees are kept confidential. Hundreds of donors and many volunteers are needed to help make this annual outreach event a success. The program begins in October and continues through the middle of December.

The food is sorted and will be distributed as part of the Holiday Program and during the rest of the year from the STEAC food closet in downtown Davis.
