GOD’S PIT CREW SENDING MUCH NEEDED RELIEF SUPPLIES TO MAUI AFTER WILDFIRES
LEAVE BEHIND DEVASTATION ACROSS THE ISLAND
DANVILLE, VA. (August 15, 2023) – God’s Pit Crew will once again be partnering with Operation Compassion – a ministry of blessing based in Cleveland, Tennessee, with a strong presence in crisis relief efforts – in order to transport much needed relief supplies to the Hawaiian island, Maui.
A full semi-load of Blessing Buckets, which are five-gallon buckets containing non-perishable food, water, hygiene items, first-aid kits, Bibles, and handwritten notes of encouragement, will soon be leaving the God’s Pit Crew warehouse in Danville, Virginia, and travelling a long distance to Maui County, Hawaii. To get there, though, the supplies will first travel to Operation Compassion headquarters in Cleveland, Tennessee, where they will then be coordinated and shipped to the Hawaiian island. Finally, the product will be distributed on the ground to those so terribly devastated by the fires.
God’s Pit Crew President Randy Johnson spoke of the efforts to get product into the distraught area. “We just kept hitting roadblocks when trying to find a way to get product into the affected area,” said Johnson. “We were told that the main port in Maui took a major hit in the disaster, so product now has to be sent to the other side of the island and trucked over to where it is so desperately needed.”
God’s Pit Crew has a longstanding relationship with Operation Compassion spanning over 20 years, and the two ministries have partnered together on previous responses, as well. “Operation Compassion has representatives on the ground in Maui and will be able to get the relief supplies into the hands of those that need it most,” explained Johnson.
The scope of the damage and loss in Maui is truly hard to comprehend. God’s Pit Crew will continue to be in prayer for all those affected by the wildfires and will continue to monitor the situation. Since the beginning of the year, God’s Pit Crew has responded to more than 10 disaster situations throughout the country and delivered over 14,000 Blessing Buckets to disaster victims.
