National Adoption Month

Chapter-01

Youth who age out of foster care may lack the support they need to thrive. November is National Adoption Month, and more than 100,000 children and youth in the U.S. foster care system are waiting for adoption.

Anyone—and everyone—can help.

Meet some of the kids on the AdoptUSKids website.

The PEACH Pit gives back (pill bottle campaign)

Container with empty pill bottles

With help of dozens of donors, The PEACH Pit recently provided about 500 empty pill bottles to a volunteer organization in Guatemala. In some areas of that country, doctors dispense medicine in plastic bags, and we wanted to change that.

Now, we’re collecting more bottles to help provide more sanitary means of giving out medicine. Your donations can help us ship empty medicine bottles to the doctors and nurses who volunteer to provide free care to the Guatemalan people.

Campers learn about caring for horses and how to ride them

Volunteers from The PEACH Pit helped children from Reconciliation House Fun in the Son summer camp learn to care for horses before taking them on short horseback rides around the campgrounds. Steel and Ginger, horses from The PEACH Pit provided lessons an entertainment for the campers who chose to visit the station.

Thanks to Paige Jobe for giving up her morning to help educate the campers.
