CHIP (formerly the Back Pack Project) offers school-based children fresh food for entire families over the weekend with the hope of getting all children healthy and ready to learn at school each Monday morning. The program is offered in Connecticut at 19 school sites, serves more than 2,319 children and 1,955 families each weekend during the school year.

Earth Animal invited local businesses and partners to participate. In addition, the company also had its first Merry Mitten Day event at its flagship retail store in Westport, gained support with local dog-friendly breweries during Octoberfest, offered a holiday “Sip & Shop” in Southport at J. McLaughlin, promoted the mission at a gala event at the Black Rock Yacht Club, plus an adoption event with Adopt-A- Dog at Half Full Brewery in Stamford, CT.

“Every year the number of families with food needs in Connecticut increases and as a company whose mission is to enhance quality of life for all Earth’s animals, we feel it’s our responsibility to support our community. It is our pleasure to match every penny donated during our Mitten Project,” says Susan Goldstein, co-founder of Earth Animal. “We are so happy to see the fundraising efforts increase each year. We raised $12,695. And, with Earth Animal’s match, our final donation to the CT Food Bank was $25,390 making it our largest donation yet.”
