God’s Pit Crew to provide tornado relief

The team packed 1,200 blessing buckets and 48 play pails

DANVILLE, Va. – After deadly tornadoes hit parts of Alabama and Georgia this week, local volunteers are stepping up to help.

Danville-based God’s Pit Crew will be sending their Immediate Response Team to Griffin, Georgia on Monday where they will help with debris cleanup.

The group is sending a truckload of donations to Selma, Alabama as well.

The team packed 1,200 blessing buckets and 48 play pails for children. The buckets contain everything from food to first-aid kits and toys.

God’s Pit Crew Chief Operating Officer Brandon Nuckles said when the group heard about the storm, they knew they wanted to help.

“Absolutely saddened to hear what this supercell did as it went through the South just taking lives,” Nuckles said. “It really grieves us and our volunteers, so we’ve been hard at work.”
