Southside Virginia News

DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) – As Hurricane Ida churns over Louisiana and much of the central Gulf Coast, God’s Pit Crew is sending three tractor-trailer loads of supplies to areas directly affected by the storm.

Items making their way include Gatorade, water, disinfecting wipes and more along with Blessing Buckets filled with food, personal hygiene items and a Bible which will be sent down to Louisiana.

“We are praying for the people of Louisiana who have faced so much heartbreak over the past two years from major hurricanes, floods and the recent winter storm. We are thankful to be able to provide supplies and Blessing Buckets to the survivors.”

Randy Johnson, God’s Pit Crew founder and president

Volunteers with God’s Pit Crew spent several weeks in Lake Charles, Louisiana earlier this summer by helping to rebuild a church destroyed by hurricanes Laura and Delta last year.

God’s Pit Crew has also responded to disasters in Canton, N.C. and Waverly, Tenn., as well as in Haiti.
