JACKSONVILLE, FLA. (November 30, 2017) – Stein Mart, Inc. (NASDAQ: SMRT) today was one of several companies that surprised two deserving military families with life-changing gifts for the holidays.
Featured on a special holiday episode of the Emmy® Award-winning daytime talk show The Doctors, Stein Mart gave each family $10,000 of cash and a $1,000 Stein Mart gift card to help furnish new homes they received as part of this episode.
Stein Mart was honored to make this donation to U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Nathaniel Bitsui and Army Staff Sergeant Jared Stacey who, along with their families, have both done so much to serve and defend our country. On the holiday episode, Sergeant Bitsui, his wife and their five children were surprised with several gifts, including those from Stein Mart, in appreciation for their service.
“Once we heard the stories of Sergeant Bitsui and Staff Sergeant Stacey, we knew we wanted to do something special to recognize these heroic veterans and their families for the sacrifices they made while serving our nation,” said Glori Katz, senior vice president of marketing and advertising for Stein Mart. “It has been a tremendous honor to share these gifts with two deserving veterans and their families, and we thank The Doctors for the opportunity to be a part of what has become a truly memorable experience for us.”
Both veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among other traumatic injuries. Stein Mart’s generous donation will help the families, both of which have lived in temporary housing, to live more comfortably in their new homes.
The Doctors airs Monday through Friday and is hosted by ER physician Dr. Travis Stork and co-hosted by plastic surgeon and reconstructive surgery expert Dr. Andrew Orden, along with co-hosts Dr. Nita Landry and recurring co-host Dr. Sonia Batra.
This special holiday episode will air again on Christmas Day, so be sure to tune in to meet these extraordinary families. To find the time and station the episode will air in your city, check local listings or visit www.thedoctorstv.com.
