Trinity Transportation Donates 10 Laptops to River Rouge Seniors

Thursday, June 7th, 2018

On June 6th, 2018, River Rouge School District hosted their annual Student of the Month event where students were honored for their academic excellence. Trinity Transportation was in attendance and donated 10 laptops to graduating seniors. The event was held at Crystal Gardens in Southgate, Michigan, where dinner and refreshments were served to attendees.

The evening was full of gratitude for administrators, parents, corporate partners, and staff for all of their hard work throughout the school year. The students also received from the principals of their individual schools recognition for going above and beyond this school year.

When it was time for the principal of River Rouge High School to make his speech, he acknowledged the students form each grade, saving the seniors for last. The seniors were commended for their academic achievements, then the announcement was made that Trinity would be giving laptops to the graduating seniors. These students are attending colleges across the country, including Howard University, Eastern Michigan University, Tennessee State University, Wayne State University, and Henry Ford College, and majoring in various subjects such as pre-nursing, pre-law, and robotics. Dave Holls, chief operating officer at Trinity, took to the podium to congratulate all of the students and to hand out the laptops to the seniors.

Trinity Transportation is proud to have worked with River Rouge Schools and honored to be their community partner for over a decade, providing them with safe and reliable transportation while also investing in the children of our community!

Several parts of the United States have been torn apart recently by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. Hurricane Harvey caused devastation to the residents of Texas and Louisiana, wrecking everything in its path. Rainfalls reached over 51”, a record for rain caused by a single storm in the lower 48. Hurricane Irma affected Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina, causing immense flooding, countless trees to be uprooted, and millions of people to be without power.  Hurricane Maria made direct landfall on Puerto Rico, completely dismantling the U.S. territory and drowning it with several feet of rain. Homes have been destroyed, people and animals have been injured or had their lives taken away, roads and vehicles have been damaged, and complete cities have been flooded, their residents having to evacuate and take shelter elsewhere. So many people have lost absolutely everything.

Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria have displaced millions of people and caused insurmountable damage to the areas in their destructive paths. It’s hard to imagine the utter heartbreak and anguish those affected by the hurricanes are feeling in the aftermath of the storms. Now is the time for those who are able to rise up and assist the residents of the affected areas. Trinity Transportation sent down five motor coach buses in the first few days of Hurricane Harvey to assist with transporting citizens, and decided to run a disaster relief drive for Harvey, Irma, and Maria victims from September 5th – 22nd. Trinity employees and the residents of Metro Detroit filled 9 large tubs with supplies for those affected by these hurricanes. We are proud of the turnout and blessed to be able to help with the relief efforts.

Trinity Transportation Supports River Rouge School District Operation Backpack Rally

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

For some families, getting ready to go back to school can be a stressful time. Between purchasing backpacks and school supplies to clothes and shoes, it can be hard to cover the costs. This is where Operation Backpack steps in. Operation Backpack provides backpacks filled with school supplies, toiletries, and water bottles to children in need so they can enter the school year prepared and ready to learn.

Trinity Transportation was proud to provide backpacks for the Operation Backpack Back to School Rally on Friday, August 25th, 2017, at River Rouge High School. The event was packed with families enjoying all of the fun activities on a nice summer day. There were three bounce houses with slides, free food and bottled water, school information (and information from various vendors), a slush machine, and much more. Paws from the Detroit Tigers even made an appearance! Home Depot handed out boats for the kids to build and aprons for them to wear (and write their names on!), and Metro PCS was taking individual photos and printing them off with a special frame for families to take home.

Tarence Wheeler, Operation Backpack organizer, said of the event: “Because of our great partnership with Trinity Transportation, we provided over 1,500 backpacks stuffed with school supplies & toiletries for students.  We know that student success is predicated on adult participation. Collectively we can alleviate all non-academic barriers.”

The River Rouge Operation Backpack rally was extremely successful and we are honored to have been a partner!

"Shop with a Cop" Annual Event, Trinity Transportation Donates School Bus

Friday, December 11th, 2015

“Shop with a Cop”

December 9th was the Annual “Shop with a Cop” event put on by Grosse Pointe Farms Police Department. This is the 5th year this event has been held and Grosse Pointe Farms Public Safety Officer Veronica Cashion was excited to see it return.

“Shop with a Cop” normally consists of the Police Officers in Grosse Pointe Farms and a couple of surrounding cities taking 25-50 special needs children Christmas shopping at a local Target. The day usually includes a lunch with the children and officers as well.

The students that participated this year were from Ferry Elementary in Grosse Pointe Farms. This year, rather than shopping, the children were invited to Grosse Pointe Farms Pier Park to do arts and crafts with the police officers, then got to meet Santa where they were each given gifts.

Trinity Transportation donated the school bus transportation for this event. Not only did the children get to ride from their school to the venue where the event took place, but they received a police escort on the way. Two Trinity Transportation drivers that normally service these children on a daily basis were able to show up and celebrate the holiday with them. Take a look at the event below!
