GOD’S PIT CREW AND MOFFETT SCHOOL IN OKLAHOMA HOST BLESSING BUCKET ASSEMBLY TO PACK OVER 1,000 BUCKETS
DANVILLE, VA. (September 7, 2023) – God’s Pit Crew and Moffett School in Moffett, Oklahoma, will soon take part in a special assembly event of filling Blessing Buckets with much needed emergency supplies. Staff members, students, and community members surrounding Moffett School will help fill God’s Pit Crew’s five-gallon Blessing Buckets with non-perishable food, first aid supplies, hygiene items, Bibles, and handwritten notes of encouragement.
Moffett School and God’s Pit Crew have a storied past together. In May 2019, the small town of Moffett, Oklahoma, experienced a devastating flood, impacting every house and structure in the town. The Arkansas River broke records when it rose to over 40-feet, leaving the entire town under several feet of water for nine days.
Moffett School, which serves students from Pre-K through eighth grade, is the hub of its community. It sustained major damage during the flood. God’s Pit Crew Founders, Randy and Terri Johnson, visited Moffett to experience the damage first-hand. After talking with pastors, and many residents throughout the small town, there was one consistent request being asked: “Please help rebuild our school.”
God’s Pit Crew committed by faith to return to Moffett that August to begin rebuilding the school. The project was fully complete just three weeks after God’s Pit Crew had set out to restore the school that had been so devastatingly impacted.
This mobile Blessing Bucket assembly will be held on Saturday, September 9, beginning at 9:30 AM and will take place at Moffett School, located at 701 Belt Avenue, Moffett, Oklahoma, 74946. School members and local community members will use the specially designed mobile assembly lines to gather the buckets and fill them with items that will help provide hope and help for survivors of major disasters. This event will help to replenish the inventory of Blessing Buckets that have already been distributed for disasters that have occurred so far this year.
God’s Pit Crew Blessing Bucket Operations Manager, Miki Jenkins, spoke of the upcoming event stating, “We are very grateful for the heartfelt relationship between God’s Pit Crew and Moffett School. It is truly a blessing for all of these people to gather together and take the time to assemble these Blessing Buckets.”
“Blessing Buckets are desperately needed for disaster survivors and are God’s Pit Crew’s first line of response after disaster strikes. The buckets provide emergency supplies, along with emotional and
spiritual encouragement when people need it the most,” continued Jenkins.
After spending the last several months holding community and school-wide fundraisers, the event taking place on Saturday, September 9, will fill over 1,000 Blessing Buckets thanks to the money raised by Moffett School. With frequent disasters seeming to happen with little time in between, God’s Pit Crew is thankful for all supporters who donate and volunteer to assemble Blessing Buckets that are ready to be distributed without haste when times of turmoil strike. The buckets completed in Moffett, Oklahoma, will remain in the region under the care of City Serve to aid in their disaster response.
“We are so thankful for the people that go above and beyond to help us fulfill our ministry’s mission of providing hope and restoration back into the lives of disaster victims,” said Randy Johnson, president of God’s Pit Crew. “The work that God’s Pit Crew is able to accomplish would not be possible if it weren’t for our amazing volunteers and donors.”
Since the beginning of the year, God’s Pit Crew has responded to 12 disaster situations throughout the country and delivered over 17,000 Blessing Buckets to disaster victims.
