In the past week, Stewart’s Shops donated $38,378 to 66 organizations in our communities. These donations include $3,773 in product, $2,210 in gift certificates, and $32,395 worth of monetary support.
For many years, Stewart’s Shops has been giving back more than $2 million annually to our shops’ communities and neighborhoods. Part of that commitment includes matching our customers’ donations of nearly ¾ million dollars during our Holiday Match campaign. The Dake Family foundations also contribute $2 million of Stewart’s stock to local charities each year. The corporation buys the stock back from the charities. This benefits Stewart’s employees by increasing their percentage of ownership to nearly 40%.
Here is a list of organizations which were given donations the week of November 10th:
