Many thanks for holiday help

From page B3 | January 16, 2014 |

STEAC, the Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee, just completed our most successful Holiday Program ever. “It Takes a Village” applies here a hundred times over.

We first want to thank all of those who adopted families this year, all 397 families. The Enterprise is extremely generous to STEAC but I think they might decline to run a thank you that lists the literally hundreds of volunteers, churches, businesses, schools, professional organizations and university departments by name.

We do want to thank the First Baptist Church, Davis Lutheran Church, St. James Catholic Church and the Korean Church. Also, thanks to Julie Cross of the Davis Food Co-op for adopting 25 families and stepping in to help when we thought we might not get all the families adopted. And thanks to Kim Eichorn of Lyon Real Estate for the bags and bags of jackets that the employees of Lyon collected.

Thank you to the Davis schools that collected food, books and jackets, with special thanks to Davis High School; Korematsu, North Davis, César Chávez and Pioneer elementary schools, and Holmes, Harper and Emerson junior high schools. Thanks to the Friends of the Library for their generous donation of books.

Thanks to Nugget Markets, Original Steve’s and Dos Coyotes for donating food to feed our wonderful volunteers during distribution week. Also, thanks to Dos Coyotes for making its December food drive an annual event.

Thanks to West Yost & Associates, First Northern Bank, University Retirement Community, the Davis Police Department and other groups and families for adopting multiple numbers of families. Thank you to Shelley Dunning and her outstanding group of carolers.

Thank you to Pam Baird who chaired, again, this year’s Holiday Program; and thank you to Will Benware, Carmen Gifford, Nancy Nesbit-Crummey, Linda Bernheim, Lynne Rumery, Kathy Tucker, Mike Finnegan, Gary Redmann, Christina Dicker and Christine Joshel for the time and expertise that they donated to make everything work.

Susan Simon
Executive director, STEAC
