Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match Checks: 1,715 Checks Totaling Over $1.88 Million Donated to Local Charities

SARATOGA SPRINGS — After a tough year for many, Stewart’s Shops is delivering some good news to nonprofits in need. Holiday Match had another successful season, and checks are now in the mail to local children’s charities. Funding has now been allocated to 1,715 organizations across the communities where Stewart’s Shops are located. 

From Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, customers donated over $940,000 to the program, which was doubled to over $1.88 million with the Stewart’s Shops match. There are no administrative costs with this program, meaning 100% of the funds collected and matched benefit these organizations.

The Stewart’s Shops Holiday Match program has now allocated more than $32 million since the program’s inception in 1986. 

Stewart’s Shops is committed to giving back to the communities in which they are located, donating approximately $2.5 million a year to local non-profits with The Dake Family Foundation contributing an additional $5 million.
