Back to School with Village Oaks

August 28, 2015

If you follow the Triumph blog, you’ve probably read about our well building trips to El Salvador with Living Water International. The team at Triumph is also excited to support our local Dallas community. Just in time for back to school, Triumph distributed 100 school supply kits for the kids of Behind Every Door’s Kids Club.

If you’re not familiar with Behind Every Door, they are a results-focused program that has decreased crime rates, reduced apartment turnover, and increased a sense of community for residents of low-income apartments in Dallas. Over the past few years, Triumph has been privileged to serve the people of this community by supporting their Kids Club program.

On August 21, seven team members used their lunch breaks to distribute 100 school supply kits to the Village Oaks kids. “The kids were so eager to start the new school year,” said Elaine of Triumph Commercial Finance. “They told us all about their new teachers and how they couldn’t wait to put their new school supplies to good use!”

Thank you to Village Oaks for letting us join in the fun of their back to school and end of summer celebration. Best of luck to all of the students going back to school this week!
