The 2012 STEAC Holiday Program was a tremendous success due to the amazing support we received from literally hundreds of Davis volunteers, families, churches, businesses, schools, local government offices, professional organizations and departments from the University.
Thank you to the First Baptist Church, Davis Lutheran Church and St. James Catholic Church who each year go above and beyond what we ask of them.
Thank you to Davis Korean Church, West Yost & Associates and the Davis Food Co-op who between them adopted over 50 families. Thank you Steve’s Pizza, Candy Cane Lane, Episcopal Church of Saint Martin, Curves West Davis, University Retirement Center, Shelley Dunning, and all the others who organized food drives and other events to benefit the Holiday Program as well as the food closet; these donations of food and money keep us going well into the new year.
Thank you to Davis Senior High School for their food drive, to Cesar Chavez Elementary School for the many years that they have put on their wonderful craft fair and made STEAC the beneficiary, to all the schools in Davis who helped with donations of coats and jackets, food and books that is so much a part in making Distribution Day such a success.
Thank you to First Northern Bank and Lyon Realty who generously hosted a drop off point for people who donated coats and jackets. Thanks to Steve’s Pizza, Dos Coyotes and Nugget Market for donating food to feed our hard working volunteers during distribution week. Thank you to Center City Garage for again arranging for Santa Claus to be with us on Distribution Day.
This year’s chairman, Pam Baird, again did an outstanding job of organizing the volunteers and keeping everything running so smoothly. Also, gratitude to Nancy Nesbit-Crummey, Carmen Gifford, Will Benware, John Baird, Charles Judson, Linda Bernheim, Kathy Tucker, Christine Joshel, Lynne Rumery and finally The Davis Enterprise for the coverage they give us all year for the Holiday Program, our food drives and running the small articles that are so necessary so that STEAC can continue to fulfill our mission into our forty sixth year.
Thank you Davis!
