Stewart’s Shops President Gary Dake to Work a Shift in Schuylerville and Ballston Lake to Celebrate Holiday Match Collections

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Stewart’s Shops President Gary Dake will personally thank customers and shop partners for their support of the Holiday Match campaign by getting behind the register.

Dake was at the Stewart’s Shops at 208 Broad Street in Schuylerville on Jan. 31 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. This location was one of the top collection shops for the Holiday Match program, collecting $9,780. He will also be at the Stewart’s on 322 Ushers Road in Ballston Lake on Feb. 6 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Ushers Road location grew their collection by 94% over the previous year.

The 2022 Holiday Match program has raised over $2 million for local children’s organizations. From Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, Stewart’s customers donated over $1,011,000 to the program. Each individual donation is matched penny for penny by Stewart’s Shops. There are no administrative costs, and 100% of the funds benefit local, non-profit children’s organizations.

Over 1,700 nonprofit organizations received funding from last year’s Holiday Match campaign. The program has allocated nearly $36 million since 1986. All local children’s charities are encouraged to apply for funding annually from the Holiday Match Program. A listing of all the charities that received Holiday Match funding last year is available at
