DANVILLE, Va. -

"I've got some snacks to eat along the way and carrying some extra flashlights with batteries."

Steve Wright's bag doesn't look like anything special but it's full of small supplies that provide big help.

"When we get in tonight you'll never know what you're going to run into and you'll need all the lighting you can get," Wright said.

He is a volunteer with God's Pit Crew and has responded to disasters so many times he's lost count, but each time it hurts to see the destruction.

"We've got about 15 leaving this morning," said Randy Johnson, founder of God's Pit Crew. He made the decision to go to Louisville, Mississippi, on Wednesday after the threat of severe weather left our area.

Monday an EF-4 tornado tore through the town killing one person and leveling homes and businesses.

"It's just the right thing to do. We're supposed to help one another when times are tough, and right now for many many people across our country after the storms this week times are tough," Johnson said.

His team started packing four tractor trailers full of relief supplies on Tuesday.

"We're probably carrying more than 60,000 pounds of relief supplies which is a pretty massive quantity of product," Johnson said.

Hundreds of Blessing Buckets left with the team also. The buckets include things like deodorant, batteries, tissues, a bible, and necessary items.

Most of the team is experienced but they'll admit it's heartbreaking when they arrive to the disaster area.

"When you see it on TV or in the paper it's nothing like seeing it in person," Wright said.

After a quick prayer and debriefing, the team left at six Thursday morning with plans to stay for up to three weeks patching roofs, clearing trees and rebuilding.
