'They are the heart of this organization’: God’s Pit Crew treated to Food for Frontline meals

DANVILLE, Va. – 10 News viewers have donated more than $30,000 to help local restaurants and feed essential workers.

In the final week of Food for Frontline, God’s Pit Crew volunteers were treated as they continued to work around the clock.

Inside their warehouse, volunteers were building the frames of two homes for victims of March’s tornadoes in Tennessee.

“It has been about as crazy as crazy could be,” said Randy Johnson, God’s Pit Crew founder.

Right after storms blew through the Volunteer State, COVID-19 touched down in the U.S., sending everyone home.

The pandemic experience for this nonprofit’s staff has been much different than most.

“It seems like the world stopped and we got accelerated,” said Johnson.

Typically, God’s Pit Crew runs on hundreds of volunteers. But during the stay-at-home order, no more than 10 at a time could help.
