Stewart’s Holiday Match Finishes Strong, Raises $2 million for Local Children’s Charities

Stewart’s generous customers came through in a big way, helping the 2023 Holiday Match program
raise more than $2 million for local children’s charities.

Customers donated more than $1 million between Thanksgiving and Christmas Day again this year. With
the company match, hundreds of nonprofit children’s organizations will benefit from the $2 million that
will be distributed over the next few months, serving as a big boost to communities throughout New
York and Vermont.

“Even during uncertain economic times, our customers continue to amaze me with their generosity,”
said Stewart’s Shops chief operating officer Chad Kiesow. “Stewart’s is a sharing company and clearly so
are our loyal customers.”

Kiesow worked a shift last week at Stewart’s Round Lake Road shop in Malta to thank our partners for
their hard work and dedication to making Holiday Match a perennial success.

“It is inspiring to know that we have such a great team working so hard to make Holiday Match happen,”
Kiesow said. “It all starts with the caring communities and customers who support us.”

Including this year’s tally, the Stewart’s Holiday Match program has raised more than $38 million since
the program started in 1986. Because Stewart’s does not charge any administrative fees, 100% of those
funds are re-distributed into the community.

Last year, the program benefitted 1,939 local nonprofit children’s organizations.

Stewart’s is accepting applications for Holiday Match funds through Jan. 31. Organizations can apply

Stewart’s, a sharing company!
