NEW BERLIN – The Stewart’s Shop in downtown New Berlin donated $2,230 to the village this week. The money was raised between Thanksgiving and Christmas as a part of the convenience store’s Holiday Match Program.
“This is really appreciated,” said Mayor Terry Potter upon receiving the check Thursday. “This will go a long way towards helping kids around the area this summer.”
Joe Brunetta, general manager of the gas station and store, said he is proud to be a part of the community and has always felt welcome by the village.
“This program is a way for us to give back to the community,” said Brunetta. “We’re all very glad to be a part of it ... it’s nice that we can add to the culture and quality of life in the area.”
