PSAA Students Serve God As Community Volunteers
Part of Adventist education is to teach the act of serving God by serving others. Puget Sound Adventist Academy students experienced the satisfaction of helping the community during a recent school-wide service day.
At one location Anika Clark, an English teacher, and seven students sorted and gave away food at Seattle's Operation Emergency Center. The students met people who have no family left to help them, children raised in poverty and others.
One student observed how appreciative staff were at the agency that someone cared enough to help out for a few hours.
"We saw a different side of life, making us more aware of our community," notes Clark. "As those teenagers walked out of there, they left knowing that these families would have something to eat during the weekend and the week ahead."
