Utica, NY (WIBX) - It was another record year for the 25th annual Stewart's Shops "Holiday Match" campaign.

According to the company, their customers raised $700,000 between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. That amount will be matched by Stewart's, making the total for this year $1.4 million.

The money will be donated to local children's charities in the spring.

The $700,000 donation from Stewart's accounts for 31 percent of the company's donation budget set aside for 2012.

Stewart's Shops has 328 locations throughout upstate New York and Western Vermont.

Townsquare Media was a supporter of the Holiday Match campaign.
