DANVILLE, VA. (January 13, 2023) – Hope and help for victims of deadly tornadoes. God’s Pit Crew is sending our Immediate Response team of volunteers to Griffin, Georgia, after a deadly tornado ravaged the area on January 12. Our team will leave our headquarters in Danville, Virginia, early Monday, January 26, and stay until January 29, to help victims of the storm. We will tarp roofs, cut trees, and remove debris.
We’re also sending a truckload of Blessing Buckets to Selma, Alabama, following a devastating tornado there. Our team is sending 1200 Blessing Buckets filled with food, first-aid and hygiene items, a Bible, and an encouraging note. And we’re sending 48 Play Pails for children containing a blanket, coloring book, stuffed animal, baby wipes, and a toothbrush.
The truckload of Blessing Buckets is headed to a church partner for distribution to victims of the storm. We are continuing to monitor the severe weather outbreak to assess additional help that may be needed.
God’s Pit Crew President Randy Johnson says, “Our hearts break for those impacted by these deadly tornadoes. We are praying for everyone impacted. We’re grateful to be able to send volunteers and Blessing Buckets to help the victims. Thank you to our wonderful volunteers and donors for helping us to provide hope, healing, and restoration to hurting people in their time of need.”
God’s Pit Crew continues serving people impacted by storms across the country. We recently deployed twice to Florida to help victims of Hurricane Ian, including rebuilding a single mother’s home. We sent Blessing Buckets to Puerto Rico for Hurricane Fiona victims. Our Immediate Response Team deployed to eastern Kentucky and southwest Virginia, assisting victims of devastating floods. Our volunteers rebuilt five homes last summer for Kentucky and Tennessee families after the deadly tornadoes a year ago. We provided a mobile home for Pembroke, Georgia, family after last April’s EF-4 tornado and another mobile home for a family whose home flooded in Pilgrim Knob, Virginia.
