The goal is to make 2,000 buckets.

"As we continue our efforts in helping those affected by Hurricane Florence, we are closely watching Michael as it heads toward the U.S. Coast," God's Pit Crew CEO Randy Johnson said in a news release Monday.

The nonprofit sent a total of 28 tractor-trailer loads of relief supplies and a team of volunteers worked for nearly two weeks after the storm helping clear debris.
