A virtual tour of The PEACH Pit

Give back on Giving Tuesday

Women Veterans at The Horsepower and Heroes Retreat at The PEACH Pit

Twenty-two.

That’s the number of daily deaths by suicide among Veterans and active duty servicemembers.

What if you could help reduce that number? You can.

The PEACH Pit offers equine-assisted psychotherapy to help people come up with solutions to their problems. Our services are not just for Veterans, but we have a soft spot for our military members.

Veterans and service members often hear, “Thank you for your service” and may not truly feel valued. They may not feel worthy of the gratitude. They may not know what to say in response.

What if you could do more than say those words? What if you could safe a life? You can.

No amount is too small to give, and you may get a tax deduction.

Giving to The PEACH Pit could help save a life. Donate today.

Help us help Veterans.

8 free sessions for Veterans

The PEACH Pit has again been funded to provide eight free individual or family equine-assisted psychotherapy sessions to Veterans and active duty servicemembers who have experienced a trauma and has a disabling condition.

We have five locations in Georgia so far: Fort Valley, Conyers, Dawsonville, Eatonton and Winder.

These services are being provided by the VA Adaptive Sports Grant, awarded to Eagala (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) and is being administered through Eagala’s Military Services partner organizations.

This just in: CFC reopens

In a rare move, the Combined Federal Campaign has reopened through June 30 for federal employees and retirees to help charities in these hard times.

Charity number 27220

The PEACH Pit sure could use your help! Our CFC number is 27220.

In these crazy times of the COVID-19 pandemic, The PEACH Pit team has put the horses out to pasture, and we have sheltered in our respective homes. Thus, we haven’t seen clients face-to-face in almost a month.

That also has meant little income that ultimately will help us provide affordable mental health care services.

We mostly rely on donations to help those who have financial challenges. This special campaign will bring in funds to help more people when we reopen.

Here’s what the CFC Special Solicitation says:

  • One hundred percent of the gifts made in this campaign will go to charities (without a distribution fee). 
  • Funds pledged will be paid out to charities by the 15th day of the month following receipt of the pledge.
  • If you didn’t pledge by payroll deduction in fall 2019, you can make a payroll-funded gift through the CFC.
  • Donors who did pledge by payroll allotments last fall can make additional donations with electronic credit, debit, or ACH gift on the CFC giving platform or the mobile app.

This is your opportunity to do even more, if you are able, to help The PEACH Pit during this difficult year.

Please add us to your pledge basket: 27220. Thank you for helping The PEACH Pit help others.
