Why Blessing Buckets?

 
 
Just Imagine…
 
Watching the dark, and stormy clouds begin to roll in like a rushing freight train. The wind begins to pick up, stronger and stronger as though you have to hold on for dear life or be blown away.
 
Suddenly, within moments, as though it was a blur, disaster has hit a neighborhood or a small town. Disaster, shock, fatigue, questions, doubts, and hopelessness fill the air like a wet blanket. Where do you turn? What do you do? For those precious people who have been caught in the nature’s wrath, HOPE shows up. Hope has come in the name and ministry of God’s Pit Crew.
 
A fragment of that hope is found in the hands and the hearts of the volunteers as they march as a mighty, victorious army with a Blessing Bucket.
 
WHAT IS A BLESSING BUCKET?
A Blessing Bucket is a five gallon bucket, filled with essential items that are used by individuals every day. When received, these buckets help to enrich lives and become a small token of God’s love.
 
WHERE DO BLESSING BUCKETS GO?
God’s Pit Crew delivers tractor trailer loads of Blessing Buckets to some of the hardest hit areas after a natural disaster. Since January 2015, God’s Pit Crew has distributed nearly 30,000 Blessing Buckets to those in need!
 
WHO RECEIVES A BLESSING BUCKET?
God’s Pit Crew distributes Blessing Buckets to individuals both domestically and internationally who are in need of essential supplies due to natural disaster, tragedy, or severe poverty.
 
Each Blessing Bucket is topped off with God’s Word.
 
We believe this book has the power to bring hope when nothing else can.
