Annual Tractor Ride With “Gods Pit Crew” that was held on
June, 29th 2023 was a huge success!
Gods Pit Crew is based out of Danville V.A.. They are a non-profit organization committed to bringing hope, healing, and restoration to people in need after natural disasters like hurricanes or tornados. Founded in 1999 Gods Pit Crew has become one of the most effective disaster relief organizations in the United States. We are truly honored!
This is their statement:
Our volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry! In 2022, over 200 new volunteers joined our crew! We now have over 900 volunteers who served over 150,000 hours this year! When you volunteer with God’s Pit Crew, you are helping to transform the lives of people who are in need. Visit our website at godspitcrew.org/volunteer. Please join us below in thanking our dedicated volunteers for their service to God’s Pit Crew!
They have something called the Blessing Bucket program and had their volunteers assemble 2,064 Blessing Buckets in just a few hours in December of 2022! Also In 2022, GPC distributed over 30,100 BLESSING BUCKETS, breaking our previous record! They are so grateful for the positive impact these Buckets have had on so many people’s lives. It would not be possible to do this without the support of every volunteer who has assembled a Blessing Bucket. This is in addition to the donors and supporters who donate and support!
We are proud to say; We were able to collect $83,555.29 for Gods Pit crew with the help of our wonderful community and our amazing sponsors! This amount will help thousands of people who have lost everything in a natural disaster! We cant thank you all enough for helping support Gods Pit Crew and what they are able to accomplish helping others.
