A total of 1,440 checks, totaling $1.34
million in grants, have been mailed to nonprofit
organizations receiving Stewart’s
Holiday Match funds, the company said.
The money, contributed by customers and
matched by the company, will assist local
children’s charities in the 30 counties
where there are Stewart’s Shops.
“In difficult economic times our customers once again showed how much they care about the children’s organizations in their communities,” said Susan Dake, Stewart’s Foundation president. “This year’s customer contributions, plus the company match, bring the Holiday Match total contributions to over $17 million in the 26-year history.”
