DANVILLE, Va. – God’s Pit Crew works hard across the world and nation to help those who have been hit hard by disasters.
This week, the Danville nonprofit sent volunteers and a tractor-trailer loaded with Blessing Buckets to Pembroke, Georgia, after a tornado swept through the area, leaving nothing but destruction in its path. . This tornado was one of many that tore through the South, killing at least three people.
