Give The Gift That Gives Back: Charity Impact
June 7th, 2022

This month marks our 4-year anniversary and we cannot thank our snack-loving community enough for making this milestone possible. Reflecting on the past few years, we have a lot to be proud of… but our greatest achievement of all is making a difference in the lives of others. And we couldn’t have done it without you!

Eastern Standard Provisions is honored to collaborate with a variety of charitable organizations that are near and dear to the hearts of many within our team. With every charity collaboration box sold, we donate $10 to support the mission of various hospitals, foundations, and more. Let’s take a look at the impact we have had on our charities through the support of our Collaboration Boxes…

St. Jude’s Research Hospital:

We launched our very first charity collaboration box years ago with the support of St. Jude Research Hospital; a renowned children's hospital that treats the toughest childhood cancers and pediatric diseases. Our “Gift of Hope” charity box has seen great success, allowing us to donate a total of $596,540 (and counting) towards St. Jude and their mission to lead the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. With this donation, we can help St. Jude Research Hospital provide any of the following:

- 48 days of inpatient treatment; or

- 60 CT scans; or

- 119 days in the ICU;

- 251 ultrasound studies; or

- 394 days of chemotherapy; or

- 1,199 hours of physical therapy; or

- 1,324 days of oxygen for patients; or

- 59,650 meals for St. Jude patients

American Cancer Society:

In collaboration with the American Cancer Society®, we launched our Breast Cancer Awareness Box to support their mission to free the world from cancer. The American Cancer Society® is leading the way with funding and conducting research, supporting patients, and spreading the word about prevention to reduce your risk of developing cancer. And with every box purchase, we have helped fund over 2 years of housing and care at Hope Lodges for a patient and their family. Hope Lodges offer patients and caregivers a place to stay during their cancer treatment. Currently, there are more than 30 Hope Lodges across the country!

Boston Children’s Hospital:

Last November, we teamed up with Boston Children’s Hospital to create the “Care For Kids” Box! Kids from every state and 100 countries turn to Boston Children’s, the hospital that’s cured more childhood diseases than any other and the nation’s #1 ranked children’s hospital 8 years in a row. With your help, we give lifesaving answers to kids through $31,470 and counting in donations to Boston Children’s. We help provide the following:

- 3,147 meal vouchers for patient families in crisis; or

- 630 packages of dye for visualizing DNA in rare disease research; or

- 450 weeks of hospital parking for patient families in need; or

- 3,147 sets of allergy-proof bedding to save kids with asthma from trips to the ER; or

- 150 weeks of patient-family housing for those who travel far; or

- 63 tablet computers to help kids endure long hospital stays

Over the past few months, we’ve launched two new charity boxes: our “Strike Out Cancer” Box in partnership with Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and our “Sprinkle Good Vibes” Box in partnership with Life Is Good Kids Foundation. With your continuous support, we can make a difference in the lives of children and their families all around the country. So let’s see what we can do in the next 4 years!

Thank you,

The team at Eastern Standard Provisions
