Stewart’s Shop will be honored by The Business Council of New York State at a September 22nd Annual Meeting dinner.
Stewart’s Shops, a Capital Region-based company, will receive the Father Peter Young Award. The award is presented to a company or individual who has demonstrated a strong commitment to giving back and serving their community. With more than 350 shops in 32 counties across New York and Vermont, Stewart’s Shops provides $9 million in product and monetary donations to 6,500 organizations annually. Our Holiday Match Program raises money from the community and matches those funds collected. Last year, customers raised over $1 million, and Stewart’s Shops matched it to give $2 million to over 1,700 children’s organizations.
“We are honored to receive the Father Peter Young Award,” said Susan Dake, President of Stewart’s Foundation. “Stewart’s Shops believes in giving back to our shops’ communities as we recognize that we are only as strong as the communities we serve.”
This year’s Annual Meeting will take place September 21 – 23 at The Sagamore Resort, Bolton Landing.
