October 06, 2010 - Oakland Christian School students served several charities and community groups during their Servathon, Sept. 23.

"I think this is fantastic," said Kay Ryde, board member of Provide Inc., one of the organizations helped. "This is a way for students to have fun and learn to have compassion. It's awesome to see they have such big hearts at such a young age."

"This is amazing," said Michelle Golus, early education director for the school, at Clarkston Community Church. "We spent the past couple of weeks talking to the children about serving. They know why they're doing what they're doing today."

Students also weeded and cleaned landscaped areas in Clarkston's Depot Park.

"First and second graders working this hard, it's unbelievable," said Peg Roth of Clarkston, volunteer and Clarkston City Council member. "What a great thing, a great group of people."
