DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ) - God's Pit Crew is in desperate need of supplies - but Walmart in Danville is helping out.

This afternoon they presented God's Pit Crew with a check for $5,000. That's enough to purchase supplies to fill 400 blessing buckets.

"We're really passionate about helping our local community and God's Pit Crew I think does a fantastic job of not only helping here in Danville, but also reaching out to the greater region and also throughout the nation, and Danville has the opportunity to contribute," said Tom Ryan, the store manager for Walmart in Danville.

The money came from a grant. Danville's Walmart will also host a "supply drive" next weekend for shoppers to help buy needed items for God's Pit Crew.
