A record-breaking Holiday Match season leads to a record amount of checks in the mail to local children’s charities! Funding has now been allocated to 1,737 organizations across the communities where Stewart’s Shops are located. That’s over 130 more than the previous record.
From Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, customers donated more than $926,000 to the program, which was doubled to more than $1.85 million with the Stewart’s match. There are no administrative costs with this program, meaning 100% of the funds collected and matched benefit these organizations.
The Stewart’s Holiday Match program has now allocated more than $24 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. Thank you!!
Stewart’s Shops is committed to giving back to the community, donating approximately $2.5 million a year to local non-profits. The Dake family foundations contribute an equivalent amount.
A brochure listing charities which received the Holiday Match grants will be available later this spring.
