DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — A Danville non-profit organization has been working since early March to meet local, regional, and national needs amid the coronavirus crisis, and later this week, they will be rewarded for their accomplishments in the form of a grant.

According to a statement released by God’s Pit Crew on Tuesday, May 26, the organization’s work amid the COVID-19 pandemic includes:

  • Assembling and distributing 150,000 nutritious meals
  • Packaging 1,000 food boxes and backpacks and distributing them in several cities
  • Delivering more than 679,000 pounds of relief supplies
  • Shipping product work a gift in-kind value of $669,000
  • Providing face masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and other PPE to first responders
  • Delivering essential supplies and “Blessing Buckets” to 35 cities

After hearing about God’s Pit Crew’s work during the outbreak, Walmart decided to commit to the cause in a big way by giving the non-profit organization a grant to support its COVID-19 response efforts.

At 2 p.m. on Friday, May 29, officials say Walmart Market Manager Jade White and God’s Pit Crew will hold a Digital Check Presentation meeting via Zoom.
