New COO Chad Kiesow works first Stewart’s Shop shift to celebrate a Holiday Match milestone

Stewart’s Shops chief operating officer Chad Kiesow worked a shift at our Round Lake Road shop in Malta on Dec. 18 to celebrate a Holiday Match milestone after the shop recorded the biggest increase in donations through the first half of the 2023 Holiday Match campaign.

Kiesow, who joined Stewart’s in 1994 and was recently named COO, worked a four-hour shift to personally thank our customers and shop partners for their generosity and support this holiday season.

Customers donated more than $4,700 at the shop during the first two weeks of Holiday Match season, a 150% increase over the same period last year. The shop is located at 15 Round Lake Road in Malta just off Exit 11 of the Adirondack Northway.

This year, customers have donated more than $700,000 to the Stewart’s Holiday Match as we head into the final week.

“Working in the shop gives me an even greater appreciation of just how hard our partners work every day,” Kiesow said. “It is humbling just to be a part of Holiday Match. I have nothing but admiration for the generosity of our customers and the dedication of our partners who help make it happen.”

Kiesow will work two additional shifts in the coming weeks to celebrate the 37th season of the Stewart’s Holiday Match program, which has raised more than $36 million since it started in 1986.

Donations collected from our generous customers are doubled, dollar for dollar, by Stewart’s Shops and 100% of the funds are invested back into the community by supporting local nonprofit children’s organizations.
