The Oneonta Dollars for Scholars board is pleased to announce that Oneonta Dollars for Scholars has been named a recipient of a Stewart's Holiday Match Program grant in the amount of $500.  All Stewart's Holiday Match funds are used for children under the age of 18 and in the communities where the money was raised and where their shops are located.  The grant funds will be used to defray printing and other operating expenses of our awards so the money raised for scholarships will go directly to our students.  www.stewartsshops.com/community-giving.  That you Stewart's Shops!
