God's Pit Crew Collecting Supplies to Send to Illinois

Posted: Updated:

God's Pit Crew is working to make a difference for the victims of the tornado in Illinois.

There are several ways you can help.

The group is holding two supply drives this week. On Wednesday, you can drop donations off at the Bonsack Walmart from noon until 6 p.m. On Thursday, God's Pit Crew will hold a supply drive at the Walmart on Wards Road in Lynchburg from noon until 6 p.m.

The items they need most are personal hygiene products, including:

  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste
  • deodorant
  • hand sanitizer
  • toilet paper
  • bottled water
  • paper towels

You could also help by making a $35 donation to cover supplies to fill a Blessing Bucket, or you can fill one yourself and drop it off at the God's Pit Crew warehouse in Danville.

Log on to www.godspitcrew.org to donate.

Blessing Bucket supplies (if filling one yourself, pack items in a new 5-gallon bucket with locking lid):

3 bottles of water
2 cans of ready-to-eat food with pop-top (Please be sure these have a long expiration dates.)
