Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match brings $112,624 to local organizations
SARATOGA SPRINGS — In these uncertain times, Stewart’s Shops is delivering some good news. After another successful Holiday Match season, checks are now in the mail to local children’s charities. Funding has now been allocated to 1,753 organizations across the communities where Stewart’s Shops are located.
From Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, customers donated almost $900,000 to the program, which was doubled to about $1.8 million with the Stewart’s match. There are no administrative costs with this program, meaning 100 percent of the funds collected and matched, benefit these organizations.
“Given the current uncertain circumstances, the Holiday Match Program means more this year than ever before and provides non-profit organizations with some certainty and much needed assistance. This true collaboration and support from our customers along with the Stewart’s match will positively impact children’s charities all year long,” said Stewart’s Foundation president Susan Dake in a news release.
The Stewart’s Holiday Match program has now allocated more than $30 million since the program’s inception in 1986. The success of program is credited to Stewart’s customers for their generous contributions, dedicated shop partners who worked diligently to collect the funds, and to the media partners who helped spread the word.
Stewart’s Shops is committed to giving back to the communities in which they are located, donating approximately $2.5 million a year to local non-profits with The Dake Family Foundations contributing an additional $5 million.
