Stewart’s Shops President Gary Dake continued a Holiday Match tradition by working a shift at a Stewart’s shop! Gary celebrated the Rensselaer shop and its customers for having the highest percentage growth in donations collected during the first half of the Stewart’s Holiday Match campaign, which raises money for local children's charities.
As of Sunday, December 10th, the shop had collected $2,200 – a growth of nearly 280% compared to the same time last season. This is the first of three visits offered to shops for the Holiday Match program. Gary will later work at the location with the highest growth at the end of the campaign, as well as the shop with the most donations collected from customers.
