An outpouring of support — and donations — has come from around the globe for Maui in the wake of deadly wildfires that have devastated the Valley Isle, including the destruction of historic Lāhainā.

That huge response includes two mainland ministries.

Danville, Va.-based God’s Pit Crew is partnering with Operation Compassion, a ministry based in Cleveland, Tenn., to transport Blessing Buckets full of relief supplies to Maui for wildfire relief and recovery efforts.


A full semi-trailer of the 5-gallon buckets, containing non-perishable food, water, hygiene items, first-aid kits, Bibles and handwritten notes of encouragement, has left the the God’s Pit Crew warehouse and is now making its way to the Valley Isle. On the way, the supplies will first travel to Operation Compassion headquarters, where they will then be coordinated and shipped to the island to be distributed.

“Operation Compassion has representatives on the ground in Maui and will be able to get the relief supplies into the hands of those that need it most,” said God’s Pit Crew President Randy Johnson.

The nonprofit God’s Pit Crew will continue to pray for all those affected by the wildfires and monitor the situation. The organization provides disaster response around the globe, delivering hope, healing and restoration to people in times of crisis.
