Stewart’s Shops announces another record-breaking season for its Holiday Match program, which supports children’s charities year round. From Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, Stewart’s customers generously donated over $870,000 to the program, which is then doubled to more than $1.74 million with the Stewart’s match.
The money raised is a 12% percent increase ($100,000 increase in customer donations) over the record $1.54 million raised in the 2014 season, which was allocated to 1,600 children’s organizations.
After this year’s funds have been distributed, the Stewart’s Holiday Match program will have allocated more than $22 million since the program’s inception in 1986.
Donations were collected from Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, at all 332 Stewart’s Shops in upstate New York and western Vermont. Stewart’s then matches all individual customer donations. There are no administrative costs and 100% of the funds collected and matched benefit children’s organizations within the communities where Stewart’s Shops are located. Those funds will be allocated in March.
The application process for Holiday Match funding has closed as of January 31st.
Stewart’s Shops thanks its customers, shop partners and media partners for their support each year. We are closer to you.
