Saving the world with masks

Video Posted on

The PEACH Pit recently partnered with Sew Blessed Alterations to provide face masks for employees at the Fort Valley Post Office.

Kandace Marie Hodge, owner of Sew Blessed Alterations who works at The PEACH PIT, came up with the idea. She provided the fabric and other supplies, and The PEACH Pit provided volunteer labor, better known as grandchildren. The work was done at Smiley’s Flea Market in Macon, where Kandace Marie’s shop is housed. The flea market was closed, which allowed the team to maintain a safe distance from others.

The work entitled ironing interfacing onto fabric, cutting and pinning patterns, cutting fabric, stitching masks, ironing mask seams and inserting elastic.

So far, the postal workers have received 30 of the 52 masks needed to protect them. The remainder were awaiting delivery.

New save the date: Loving Life Benefit Concert Oct. 10

The *Oct. 10 concert features Scott Helmer, a musician, songwriter and overall great performer. And in 2008, he was seconds away from committing suicide.

Buying a ticket will help The PEACH Pit do its part to reduce Veteran and first responder suicides. Plus, you’ll hear great music.

*Note that we rescheduled the concert from Aug. 1 to maximize the time for the world to recover from COVID-19.

Manure happens: Procrastinate no more

Well, federal friends, today is officially the last day of the Combined Federal Campaign.

You’ve wanted to give and have kept putting it off because stuff kept getting in the way. Manure happens.

Today is the day to give to The PEACH Pit, CFC No. 27220. The nonprofit provides affordable mental health care to all clients, whether children, families, Veterans or active duty military. Our horses help humans find solutions to their problems.

Whether you’re a current or retired federal employee, you can give.

Oh, wait, today is Sunday, and you’re not at work. No excuse. If you have access to the Internet, you can give at https://cfcgiving.opm.gov/welcome. Once online, search for The PEACH Pit or our CFC number: 27220.

Your donation ensures that clients who struggle to get through their stuff don’t further have to struggle with paying to receive help. Your donation helps eliminate that financial strain.

So far, the amount of pledges for the 2019 campaign has increased by 153 percent, and the number of donors has increased 65 percent over the 2018 campaign. For a small nonprofit, that’s huge.

Give. Please. And share this post with friends. Because manure happens to us all, and some of us need help to get unstuck.

Even if you’re not a federal employee, you can donate.

The PEACH Pit’s primary goal is to provide affordable mental health care for those in need. We believe no one should have to struggle to pay for this basic need.

On this day, please consider helping us help others. We know you have many worthy causes to consider. Please make The PEACH Pit one of them.

If you’re military, retired military, a federal civilian or retired federal civilian, please consider donating through the Combined Federal Campaign. Our CFC number is 27220.

No amount is too small, and, of course, no amount is too large. You also can volunteer your time.

A basic need

Video Posted on

What’s the most important basic need: food, shelter, good physical and mental health, clothing?

If you had to give up one, which would it be? Many would keep food, shelter and clothing, until they absolutely had to focus on the health part.

What if you didn’t have to choose?

At The PEACH Pit, we believe good mental health is as basic a need as food, that no one should have to choose between any of the basic needs.

That’s why we’re a nonprofit.

We use an equity plan, giving everyone the opportunity to have a stake in their care:

  1. How much is your monthly income?
  2. How much are your expenses?
  3. What’s left?
  4. Of the amount that’s left, how much can you afford to pay each week for services – without financial strain?

Where does the fee balance come from?

Donations, grants, gifts all help us provide affordable mental health care to our clients who may struggle with the choice.

Please consider donating to The PEACH Pit. Every penny donated helps provide a basic need: mental health care.

Donate today.
