KSBJ/Houston has partnered with God’s Pit Crew for a fun and exciting way to bring the surrounding community together in servitude and fellowship.  Their volunteering efforts will help deliver hope to many people in crisis the next time disaster strikes and Blessing Buckets are delivered.

“The work that God’s Pit Crew is able to accomplish would not be possible if it weren’t for our amazing volunteers and donors,” said Randy Johnson, president of God’s Pit Crew.  “We are so thankful for the people that go above and beyond to help us fulfill our mission of providing hope and restoration back into the lives of disaster victims.”

Blessing Buckets are five-gallon buckets filled with essential supplies such as food, water, hygiene products and more.  Each Blessing Bucket also includes a Bible, a Joyce Meyer Ministries devotional, and notes of encouragement for the receiver.  Once in the hands of people experiencing a time of crisis, Blessing Buckets help to enrich their lives and become a small token of God’s love.
