In the spirit of Christmas giving, the students at Dickinson's Hope Christian Academy did service projects on Friday, Dec. 21.

"I challenged the teachers and students to look for opportunities to serve the community," said administrator Ron Dazell. "We wanted to make our emphasis, rather than all about me-me at Christmas, but how we can become more others-oriented."

Grades 3-4 played Christmas games with residents at Evergreen.

Grades 5-6 made snow art with residents at CountryHouse.

Grades 1-2 assisted with Salvation Army ring bells.

Grades 7-8 helped volunteers at AMEN Food Pantry fill shelves.

"I think this is going to be a great experience for them. There's nothing like kids serving in a community and learning that from an early age," he said.
