2019 - Supporting RAICES

$1,341 raised for RAICES


2019 was our third campaign, having skipped 2018 due to a move. The Trump administration began a policy of family separation at the southern border to discourage migrants and asylum seekers. Many Americans, including our Gardner family, viewed this policy as cruel and contrary to our national values. The kids picked RAICES, an organization that "promotes justice by providing free and low-cost legal services to under-served immigrant children, families, and refugees."

This was the year things took off for the Peach Pie Project. In previous years we made less than 20 pies per year, but in 2018 we made a record 46 pies and $1,441 in donations.

Project firsts:

  • Set a new record for number of pies made: 46
  • Set a new record for donations made: $1,341
