God's Pit Crew left Danville Wednesday bright and early. The volunteers started making the trip to Moore, Okla., around 6 a.m. Our media partner, WSLS, sent a crew that met the volunteer group in Wytheville around 8 a.m. and then began the more than 17-hour drive to Moore.
The founder, Randy Johnson, says he got 500 to 600 e-mails Tuesday from people in the community wanting to help. He says monetary donations are extremely helpful. Every time they fill up just one tractor trailer, it costs the group about $1,300. Twenty volunteers in five trailers are bringing about 120,000 pounds of supplies to Moore. God's Pit Crew will stop in Jackson, Tenn., Wednesday night and them continue the trip into Moore Thursday afternoon.
