2021 Appalachia Floods
Following the historic floods that rocked Kentucky’s Appalachian counties in 2021, Trucks With Room to Spare didn’t waste a moment in finding a way to help. Our team contacted God’s Pit Crew, a non-profit crisis response team who shares our mission of serving those in times of need. After our officials met with community leaders and first responders to establish an effective relief plan, God’s Pit Crew dispatched a big-rig loaded with vital supplies to the hardest hit areas of Kentucky and West Virginia, providing crucial support to those who needed it most.
