Stewart’s Holiday Match Tally Update: Over $1 Million Collected!

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

We did it! We collected over $1 million for Holiday Match thanks to our generous customers!

Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Program was a tremendous success once again! Customers have donated more than $1,007,879!

For 35 years, the Stewart’s Holiday Match program has matched each donation, penny for penny, dollar for dollar. This year, with the Holiday Match, we’ve raised over $2 million! These funds will stay in your local community to support nonprofit charities benefitting children.

It’s been reported that many fundraising organizations spend 30% or more on overhead expenses. Stewart’s Holiday Match Program has no administrative fees and covers all the expenses. This means 100% of the funds are distributed after being matched by Stewart’s! Funding may go to a little league team, a local food pantry or an arts program at the library.

Each week, a different Holiday Match recipient is highlighted, this week, we are featuring Things of My Very Own. This non-profit organization provides crisis intervention services to children impacted by extensive abuse or neglect. The organization also helps children at risk of a child protective services intervention due to lack of necessities. Things of My Very Own has helped children in 11 counties across New York’s Capital Region and surrounding areas.
