A Blessing Bucket is a five-gallon bucket filled with essential items that are used by individuals every day. When received, these buckets help to enrich lives and become a small token of God’s love to a person in a time of crisis.

Hope in Blue
Hours after devastating Hurricane Florence blasted the Carolina coast, God’s Pit Crew rolled into the area with Blessing Buckets and relief supplies. Thousands of Blessing Buckets were distributed throughout the coastal areas in response to requests for help. So many touched our hearts as we reached out to the hurting and there was story after story from storm survivors…

Blessing Bucket Crew Team
Our need for Blessing Buckets never lessens and to keep up with the demand, we need your help. Did you know that for only $40.00 a month, you can give hope to someone in their darkest hour? Maybe you’ve wanted to help at a disaster site or go to a foreign country to deliver humanitarian aid? Most of us want to but can’t do these things because of time or financial constraints. However, when you become a Blessing Bucket Crew Member, you are there… in the form of a bucket… or water… or relief supplies! When someone opens a Blessing Bucket and feels the hope and love of Jesus, as a crew member, you make that happen!
