The generosity of Stewart’s Shops customers has again made the Holiday Match program a success. Despite having six less collection days, they’ve donated just as much as last year!
From Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, Stewart’s customers gave over $670,000 to Holiday Match, which is then doubled to $1.34 million, with the Stewart’s match. The amount is equal to the monies raised during last year’s campaign, which is even more significant because of the shortened time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. There were only 28 collection days this year, compared to 34 last year!
After this year’s funds have been distributed, the Stewart’s Holiday Match program will have allocated nearly $19 million since the program’s inception in 1986.
Children’s charities can still apply for funding from the Holiday Match program. Applications must be submitted or postmarked by January 31, 2014 to be considered for funding. More information can be found here.
Stewart’s Shops thanks all of our customers, shop partners, and media partners for helping give back to children’s charities in our communities. It’s another way we are closer to you.
