As an Adventist Christian school, service to others remains a high priority. Each year, under the guidance of their teachers, every Riverside class makes a Service Plan for improving the community or helping those in need. Projects range from visitations to gifts, to fundraising, to musical performances, to artwork and anything else the students may dream up. In the past, some of these ideas have been linked to the gardening program. So far, the impact on the students themselves has far outweighed the obvious benefits to others.
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.
