GOD’S PIT CREW’S IMMEDIATE RESPONSE TEAM DEPLOYING TO GEORGIA TO HELP VICTIMS AFTER HURRICANE IDALIA LEAVES DESTRUCTION IN ITS WAKE
DANVILLE, VA. (August 31, 2023) – God’s Pit Crew’s Immediate Response Team will deploy early Sunday morning from headquarters in Danville, Virginia, and travel to Valdosta, Georgia, and surrounding areas to help victims of catastrophic Hurricane Idalia. Once on location, the highly-trained volunteers and staff will begin working in the hardest-hit areas.
God’s Pit Crew semi-trucks and haulers equipped with chainsaws, tarps, and heavy equipment will be on hand and will be used to clear debris, cut and remove trees, and muck out and dry homes. Other tractor-trailer loads containing emergency relief supplies including pallets of water, Gatorade, and Blessing Buckets are also headed to both Georgia and Florida to provide additional aid. Blessing Buckets are five-gallon buckets containing non-perishable food, water, hygiene items, first-aid kits, Bibles, and handwritten notes of encouragement.
God’s Pit Crew President Randy Johnson spoke of the scene saying, “The destruction caused by Hurricane Idalia is widespread and tragic. We continue to pray for all impacted and are ready to begin working to help the survivors.”
Response by the God’s Pit Crew ministry would not be possible without the outpouring support provided by volunteers and donors. “We can’t thank the people that support our organization enough. Everyone who volunteers and donates to our relief responses helps our mission of providing hope and healing be a true possibility,” said Johnson.
As the ministry looks to restock their inventory of Blessing Buckets to keep responding and providing the much-needed materials to survivors, they encourage anyone interested in sponsoring a Blessing Bucket – which cost $35 per bucket to fill – or to support their ongoing immediate disaster response efforts to visit GodsPitCrew.org or call (434) 836-4472.
God’s Pit Crew continues to serve people impacted by storms across the country. Relief supplies were recently sent to Hawaii to aid victims of the wildfires that ravaged Maui, while team members have also been in Rolling Fork, Mississippi, preparing to rebuild two homes for families that lost everything in devastating tornados earlier this year.
