Thanks Stewarts Shops

Written by Executive Editor on November 10th, 2009

In addition to managing an empire of stores that trade mostly in Marlboros, Lottery Tickets and Adirondack Crunch Ice Cream, Susan and Bill Dake, the owners of Stewart’s Shops, recently pledged to donate 350,000 dollars to Skidmore College.  Roughly equivalent to 116,666 gallons of milk, 43,750 packs of cigarettes or 140,000 extra thick milkshakes.

The donation is just a small piece of the 3.9 million pledged to the Community Foundation. The Dakes established the donor-advised trust with the intention of supporting institutions wherever Stewart’s Shops are enjoyed.
