Driggers Family – Pembroke, Georgia

Nolan, Terri Driggers, and their two little girls were at their home in Ellabell, near Pembroke, Georgia, when the devastating EF-4 tornado hit. The twister rolled their mobile home with the family still inside. The tornado destroyed the family’s mobile home and personal belongings, but they survived without significant injuries. 

“The day it hit., from the time our mobile home stopped rolling, I was just thankful to be alive. Once it picked up in the air and I felt it flipping, I thought we were all gone. I didn’t realize everything was as bad as it was until we crawled out of the window,” said Nolan Driggers. 

God’s Pit Crew felt led by the Lord to provide the Driggers with a brand-new, three-bedroom, two-bath mobile home, similar to their home destroyed by the tornado. 

When the Driggers found out they would receive a brand new mobile home free of charge, Nolan and Terri were overcome with an overwhelming feeling of relief that they would have a home for their family. 

“I didn’t have a clue what we were going to do. I didn’t know what my next steps were going to be,” said Nolan. 

Our Immediate Response Coordinator, Chris Chiles, led a small team of volunteers to build the front porch and rear deck and complete all the landscaping. 

On June 25, 2022, the Driggers family was given the keys to their new, fully-furnished, decorated mobile home. 

“I knew it was going to look good, but I never expected it to be like this,” said Nolan. 

“There’s people who had their hands in this that I don’t even know about. Thank you God’s Pit Crew and absolutely everyone. Y’all are a huge blessing.”
