ESYO’s CHIME program is changing the lives of children in our community through music by offering children from underserved communities the opportunity to have free daily music instruction. In recognition of CHIME’s impact on the community, Stewart’s Shops has awarded ESYO a $1,500 grant through its Stewart’s Holiday Match program to help continue to build the CHIME program.
From Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day, customers at Stewart’s Shops donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the matching program. Those donations were doubled with the Stewart’s match. Stewarts then chose from among thousands of requests for funding, including ESYO.
“We are so appreciative of the support of Stewart’s Shops,” said ESYO Executive Director Rebecca Calos, “ESYO CHIME is making a big impact on our community and so is Stewart’s. We applaud them for all they do on behalf of thousands of local community organizations in our area.”
