God's Pit Crew collects thousands of bottles of water for Harvey victims

Organization held its latest donation drive in Roanoke Monday

ROANOKE, Va. – God's Pit Crew is continuing its efforts to help people impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

On Monday, the Danville-based organization collected bottled water donations at the Bonsack Kroger in Roanoke. This is just one of many collections it has held since Harvey made landfall in Texas Aug. 25.

When WSLS 10 checked in Monday afternoon, the nonprofit had already filled two tractor-trailers and had a third on the way. That means thousands of cases of water are headed to people in need in Texas.    

"It's very heartwarming and you know you're doing this to bless those that have lost so much in Texas but you get an equal or even greater blessing by just being out here and doing what you can," God's Pit Crew Vice President of Ministry Operations Nathan Burnett said.

God's Pit Crew is also accepting monetary donations and other items. So far, they've sent a total of 22 trucks with nearly a million pounds of products to Texas.
