After 8 Days, The Holiday Match Tally is….

Holiday Match Donations jar with a hand placing in money. The text reads Holiday Match!

Drum roll please….

In the first 8 days of the Holiday Match program, we have collected more than $241,000 since Thanksgiving…that’s more than $482,000 for the kids on our communities. There are only 20 more days for Stewart’s to double your donation!

Holiday Match is a program that started 33 years ago to specifically benefit organizations/programs for kids under the age of 18 in the areas of social services, health, education, recreations, and the arts. To date, with the help of our customers, we have raised over $28 million for local children’s charities. We collect donations in our shops from Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day**. We match our customers’ donations dollar for dollar, penny for penny, with no administrative fees. In 2018, together we raised over $2 million. Non-profit 501c3 organizations are able to apply for funds starting Thanksgiving Day through January 31st. Applications are reviewed, and allocations are made in March.

Last year 1830 organizations received Holiday Match Funding.  The Adirondack Experience was one of the lucky recipients.

The Adirondack Experience is an educational gem in Blue Mountain Lake. This museum provides an Adirondack education every year to thousands of students and families. The interactive exhibits and traveling classrooms captivate students and adults alike.

Without outside contributions and funding, the museum would not be able to add new exhibits and provide this invaluable education.

The Adirondack Experience has been a Holiday Match recipient for many years and they are forever thankful to Stewart’s customers for their generous donations to the Holiday Match program.
