The Connecticut-based Gowrie Group is launching its 12th annual matching challenge with a $25,000 donation to the Shoreline Soup Kitchens and Pantries.

Five local companies — The Safety Zone, LC Doane Co., Tower Labs, Lenny & Joe's Fish Tale and the Tariq Farid Foundation — are providing an additional $22,500 in matching funds.

This year, Gowrie Group is challenging the community of local businesses and friends to help it raise $125,000. Meeting this year's goal would put the lifetime total amount raised by the Gowrie Group Shoreline Soup Kitchen Challenge over the million-dollar mark.

The challenge runs from Nov. 15-Dec.31.

"We are extremely proud that over the past 11 years we have raised almost $1,000,000 to benefit those in need in our community and support the great work the SSKP does,” Gowrie Group CEO Carter Gowrie said in a statement.

“We greatly appreciate the donations made by so many of our clients, local businesses and friends each and every year. I look forward to us together breaking the million-dollar mark this year."
