  Triumph Church partners with DPSCD to provide digital devices to access internet

Triumph Church Challenge Region to Show Togetherness Against COVID-19 by Giving

DETROIT, MI – With the state of emergency still in effect and many public buildings closed Triumph Church, along with its partner, Verizon, donated electronic digital devices to access the internet for students who need to take AP exams. These devices will also assist students who had scheduled exams with the college Board to take the test in the comfort, safety and security of their own homes.

“When we found out that some students in the District did not have the necessary connectivity to the internet to take the AP exams, we reached out to our network of friends to find another solution to students having to walk through a community devastated by COVID-19 to take AP exams, said Senior Pastor Solomon Kinloch. Verizon stepped up to provide devices at a deep discount as a show of support for our efforts. We appreciate their commitment to our children.”

“When we notified Dr. Nikolai Vitti, General Superintendent of the Detroit Public Schools Community District, of our desire to assist in bridging the digital device, he committed two high level staff persons—Iranetta Wright, Deputy Superintendent, and Chief Ralph Godbee to work with us to address the issue, said Attorney Anthony Adams, head of the Social Justice Ministry for Triumph Church. It is extremely import to our church that our children be protected during this devastating pandemic.”

“People have experienced a wide range of emotions regarding this outbreak, from anger and anxiety, to fear and sadness,” remarked Pastor Solomon Kinloch, Jr., senior pastor at Triumph Church. “So it is important that the Church remain a light of positivity – a House of Hope – particularly in times like these.”

As a part of its ongoing effort to assist in getting the community through COVID-19 in Detroit, Triumph Church continues to donate on a weekly basis digital devises to those suffering in the margins of society. Triumph Church has also opened its Compassion Center at the church’s East Campus, located at 2760 East Grand Boulevard in Detroit. It offers emergency groceries and available supplies by drive-up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the church also offers free groceries – delivered by its staff and volunteers. Unemployed workers, single mothers, senior citizens or those physically disabled can register to receive the pick-up or delivery service at Groceries will be distributed to qualified registrants on a first-come-first-served basis, and limited to one giveaway per household per week.

Contributors can also support Triumph Church help our young people suffering from a shortened school year, due to lack of resources. Because of the “Digital Divide,” many Detroit-area students have been unable to continue educational settings during COVID-19 because they lacked the hardware. Triumph Church will use your direct contributions to secure laptops or tablets for affected students. Donations will not deduct administrative costs or fees, so 100% of the donations are to secure devices.

With greater support, Triumph would also like to impact other needs that may arise, such as: child care services for medical professionals and first responders, more grief and family counseling, or donating personal protective equipment.

“The one thing I am confident about is this: we have a mandate from Christ to care for the vulnerable in our community. So we’re issuing a challenge to our members, friends, other Churches, and the greater community to use this national crisis as a catalyst to bring us together. Start a start a similar campaign of giving or join forces will ours for a greater impact. Togetherness is what will defeat this enemy, said Pastor Solomon Kinloch.”
