Transformation Church has donated more than 200 MacBook laptops to high school seniors and staff at a school in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, area.
The church distributed the 221 MacBook laptops at McLain High School for Science & Technology on Monday.
Tammy McQuarters, the executive pastor of Operations at Transformation, told The Christian Post that the giveaway was part of their “culture code of generosity,” noting that “we give just to give, not to get.”
“Particularly in March, labeled as ‘The Month of Generosity,’ we look for opportunities in the community to be generous. One of the opportunities identified this year was to bless the seniors, teachers and administration at McLain High School,” McQuarters said.
As part of this code, McQuarters told CP that the church sets aside “10 percent of our income to give to individual benevolent situations, natural disasters, and other nonprofit organizations that provide support for homelessness, food banks, and other churches to name a few.”
“We just want people to know that the church cares for them and, more importantly, Jesus loves them. Our vision statement is to 'Re-present God to the lost and found for Transformation in Christ,'” she continued.
“We want to show God differently, promote God differently and give God differently, and sometimes that is best done by meeting their needs.”
For their part, McLain High School took to their Facebook page to express their appreciation of the laptop giveaway, noting that it happened at an event featuring remarks by Transformation Church Lead Pastor Michael Todd.
“He told them he hopes they turn that into a music studio, or a business, or the book that is living inside of them, or to use it to continue their educations,” posted McLain.
“We are so grateful, and even though they didn’t do it for the shout out, we want to SHOUT THEM OUT! Thank you for pouring love into McLain!”
Last December, Transformation raised millions of dollars to help several churches, charity groups, and individuals; this included giving one needy family a car and money to buy a house.
“The whole mission of this message was to show you more than I could tell you,” said Pastor Todd in a statement last year to commemorate the donations.
“Transformation Church gains nothing from blessing these people and organizations personally but the reputation of the Kingdom of God is expanded because of what God did through us today.”
