WARWICK — Each year since 1986, from Thanksgiving through Christmas, Stewart’s Shops has collected and matched donations in its stores for the purpose of providing financial assistance to local organizations that benefit children under the age of 18.

This year, five organizations in the Town of Warwick received grants from Stewart’s Shops 2015/16 Holiday Match program.

• Albert Wisner Public Library Foundation, the mission of which is to raise private funds in support of services and programs at the library, received a grant to support Teen Battle of the Books, a summertime reading program for younger adolescents.

• Warwick Community Kitchen, an outreach mission of Vision Community Church in Pine Island that serves a monthly hot meal and bagged take-home lunch to any member of the community who desires to partake, received a grant to support Girl Scout Troop 627, which it also sponsors.

• Warwick Ecumenical Food Pantry, located in the Warwick United Methodist Church and serving hungry people who reside in the Town of Warwick, received a grant to support its summertime program, when free school breakfasts and lunches are unavailable, which provides supplemental bags of kid-friendly groceries to needy families with children.

• Winslow Therapeutic Riding Center, where children and adults improve their physical, emotional, cognitive and social well-being by learning horseback riding in a therapeutic environment, received a grant again this year to support its programs for children.

• You Are Beautiful People, which organizes adaptive participatory sports programs for children with developmental and physical disabilities, received a grant that will enable it to enhance its programs of baseball, soccer, and basketball with the intent that every child deserves a chance to play team sports and gets that chance.

The grants generally range from $300 to $500.

Stewart’s Shops, Inc. is a family and employee owned convenience store (many of which also sell gasoline) chain with many locations in upstate New York and southern Vermont. The store nearest Warwick is located on Route 17M in the Town of Goshen on the way to Middletown.
