On a Mission to Serve
OKLAHOMA CITY – The students at Parkview Adventist Academy participate in community service all year. Continuous community service is a reflection of who we are, and teachers are intentional about inspiring students to serve like Jesus.
On Sept. 11, 2020, students and teachers went into the community to hand out flyers. They told everyone they saw to come by the school on Sept. 13 to receive a fresh produce box.
Sunday was a beautiful day! God granted us perfect weather and we had more volunteers than we expected. We were blessed to serve our community with over 2,000 boxes of fresh produce! Students, teachers and parents joined forces that day to be the hands and feet of Jesus, ministering to the needs of the community one car at a time.
Our location is considered to be a dry area because there aren’t any grocery stores here. For us to be able to provide food for our community was a blessing!
Individuals came by Parkview to get boxes, and we had a team that delivered to the elderly in the neighborhood who weren’t physically able to come to the school. We were able to serve 900 families. We were blessed to have an opportunity to put our mission into action: Educating, Inspiring and Serving.
It would not have been possible without the help of all our amazing volunteers, Bill Carlile and GoFresh USA, who provided the produce. We are looking forward to doing this again in the near future!
