God’s Pit Crew volunteers and staff revealed a newly rebuilt home last Saturday in Port Charlotte, Florida, for a mother with three children whose house was destroyed during Hurricane Ian.
God’s Pit Crew Immediate Response Team redeployed to Florida on Sunday, November 27th, and finished work last Friday, December 9th. Volunteers have used chainsaws and heavy equipment to cut trees, clear debris, and muck out homes. They also rebuilt, decorated, and furnished a house belonging to Maria and her three children. When they met Maria during the first deployment, her home’s damage was so extensive that she was living in her car.
God’s Pit Crew stated, “During our first deployment, 169 volunteers worked for several weeks, helping 203 families. During our second trip, 76 volunteers, including DJs and listeners from PraiseLive, have helped 41 families and rebuilt a home. We’ve also sent numerous tractor-trailers of supplies, including water, tarps, generators, and 10,000 Blessing Buckets. A Blessing Bucket is a five-gallon bucket filled with food, first aid, hygiene items, a Bible, and a handwritten note.”
God’s Pit Crew President Randy Johnson says, “Our volunteers have worked incredibly hard, pouring their hearts into their work helping Maria and many survivors of Hurricane Ian. We are very grateful. We also want to thank our wonderful donors and partners, especially Joyce Meyers Ministries’ Hand of Hope, for your support. We could not do this without you.”
God’s Pit Crew continues serving people impacted by storms across the country sending Blessing Buckets to help Hurricane Fiona victims in Puerto Rico. Our Immediate Response Team deployed to eastern Kentucky and southwest Virginia, assisting victims of the recent devastating floods. Volunteers rebuilt five homes for free this summer for Kentucky and Tennessee families after last December’s deadly tornadoes. .
