Stewart’s Shops is teaming up with its customers once again to raise money for local children’s charities. The Stewart’s Holiday Match campaign kicks off on Thanksgiving Day and runs through Christmas Day at all shop locations, including St. Lawrence County shops in Massena, Potsdam, Canton, Ogdensburg, Heuvelton and Winthrop

The program doubles customer donations penny for penny, and has set fundraising records for three consecutive seasons.

In 2016, customers donated an incredible $926,000 to the program, doubling to more than $1.85 million with the Stewart’s match. This was a $100,000 increase over the previous season. The funds were able to support a record 1,737 local children’s organizations across the 31 counties with Stewart’s Shops.

This program has contributed more than $24 million to thousands of local children’s organizations since 1986. All the money donated goes to charity; there are no administrative costs. The funds are allocated in March.

Local children’s organizations are encouraged to apply for funding online at stewartsshops.com. Paper applications are also available at shops. The deadline for submission is January 31, 2018.
