DANVILLE, Va. - God's Pit Crew helps out thousands of people nationwide -- and now they're getting some help in return. 

The Danville nonprofit received a $5,000 check from the Walmart Foundation and the Danville Walmart for its Blessing Buckets program. 

"Blessing Buckets are an essential item for someone who has lost everything after a disaster," said Julie Barnett, the Blessing Bucket program director. 

The nonprofit says this donation will make it possible to "help so many in their time of need."
