Stewart's Holiday Match program grant couldn't be more appreciated!

April 02, 2020

4.2.2020 Thank you Stewart’s Holiday Match!

We’ve received a $1000 grant from this wonderful program. Stewart’s has been giving back to the community forever, and to Crossroads now for eleven years. The Holiday Match program has now allocated over $30 million since the program’s inception. Customers donate, and Stewart’s matches those donations.

This year’s Crossroads request was written to help with our SMART schools upgrade, and implementing the new online server which we are still raising money for. This grant will get us closer to our goal in a big way!

Thank you to everyone who contributed!

12.18.19 The Holiday Match Program is going on now!

During these busy days of the holidays, we hope you’ll take a few minutes of the season to stop into your local Stewart’s shop! While you’re there make a donation of any amount to the Holiday Match Program! The last day to donate is Christmas day!

The Holiday Match program has contributed to fund development for Crossroads for over 10 years now! We are so thankful for their ongoing support! Here’s the video they created to showcase Crossroads when they visited us back in August! We think it’s awesome! Thank you, Stewart’s Foundation for your spirit of giving in our communities!

8.16.19  Representatives from Stewart’s Holiday Match Program visited Crossroads Center for Children today, to find out what the Holiday Match Program means to us. 

Crossroads Center for Children was happy to have Amy Potter, Corporate Contributions Director for Stewart’s Shops, and Heather Bennice, Videographer, here with us today.

During today’s visit, Mrs. Kelly Young, Executive Director for Crossroads Center for Children, was interviewed and recorded telling about how the grants have helped us over the years and the ease of this particular program for us to apply for. Students were recorded saying a big group thank you to the foundation, and then Amy and Heather were taken through the building to see and photograph various settings and resources. They were present for the school-age program’s Graduation and Achievements Celebration, too, and we thank them for being with us. They will be using content collected today during their Holiday Match campaign this year, as a way to show donors how their contributions are making a difference. Here at Crossroads, contributions such as these make a huge difference and we are grateful.

For 10 years now, Stewart’s Holiday Match grants have helped our students at Crossroads Center for Children learn essential skills and given them the tools they need for successful lives, now and in the future.

The Holiday Match Program has helped us purchase supplies and furnishings for classrooms some years, upgrade technology in others. It’s helped with everything from renting this space, the building we are housed in to paying the therapists and teachers that work with the children here.

We’re a non-profit organization, so we very much need a huge amount of financial support to exist. And to carry out the mission we have here – preparing children for lives they’ll be successful in. We have many students here with very significant needs. There’s a large gap between the funds we receive from tuition payments and what it actually costs to run a school such as this one. By supporting Crossroads, the way Stewart’s Foundation their customers and stores do, they are helping to meet that gap and help children from all over our region, from the very communities that Stewart’s Shoppes are located.


Amy and Heather will be sharing their final work with us, and when we do, we’ll share it here!

Sending out a big thank you to Stewart’s Foundation Holiday Match Program for their support this year. We all signed this and it’s going in the mail today!


We’re thankful to have received a grant from the Stewart’s Holiday Match program to help us with the extensive costs of running our school and working with children and families. The Stewart’s Foundation has supported Crossroads Center for Children for several years now and is real help to our ongoing needs. We deeply appreciate their help and interest in the program.
Because of Stewart’s Shops and their customers, along with other grants and donations, we are able to serve approximately 100 children and families from this region. Grants such as this one are critically needed for us to continue to have the means to provide the highly individualized specialized education programming that moves students forward with their goals. For many students here, Crossroads has been the very first place and time that progress was made and that hope was felt by their parents.
