Erika Komoroske, Public Relations Specialist for Stewart’s corporate offices in Saratoga Springs, stated, “At Stewart’s Shops, we give back to the communities we serve because we believe in making communities stronger and better places to live. The Landis Arboretum does just that – promoting the preservation of our land and appreciation of trees and plants for a better environment. We are proud to support such an integral part of Schoharie and Montgomery Counties.”
Stewart’s Corporation had contributed to many regional events, such as the Landis Arboretum 5K Forest Run. It has also awarded Landis a grant in 2020 for child and family friendly programming. It has awarded similar grants to Landis in the past.
Fact: did you know that chocolate milk is a recovery drink for runners? As the runners in the Arboretum’s 5K crossed the finish line in August, they were provided Stewart’s low-fat chocolate milk and regular chocolate milk to refuel. Cornell University’s Department of Food Sciences recently crowned Stewart’s chocolate milk – and white milk too — #1 in New York State.
Stewart’s strongly believes that regional milk production is the key to its product base and partners with 23 local dairy farms to source their raw milk. Drivers pick up the milk daily. The milk is processed and bottled at the Stewart’s manufacturing plant in Greenfield, NY – all to ensure the highest standards of quality.
Stewart’s Shops also feature premium quality ice cream – who could resist their creamy vanilla milkshakes? Stewart’s Shops offer competitive gas pricing, as well as many items “convenient” to pick up on the way, coming or going, including that early morning coffee.
Another fact: Stewart’s Shops donates $7.5 million in product and monetary donations annually. Landis is truly appreciative of its partnership with Stewart’s.
