At OCS, we believe in making a positive impact not only within our school but also in the larger community. One of the ways we do this is through our partnership with several area organizations. The Power Company Kids Club and Dutton Farms are examples of the types of partnerships we have.
The Power Company Kids Club
Each year, our school comes together to participate in a blanket and food drive. During a dedicated chapel time, our students fill food boxes for Thanksgiving dinners and tie blankets, spreading warmth and love to families in need. Each year we provide 100 Thanksgiving dinners and 100 blankets to families in and around Pontiac.
Dutton Farms is a organization that supports adults with developmental disabilities. Our partnership with Dutton Farms includes a charity basketball game that brings together their farmers and our students at OCS, creating a fun and inclusive environment for everyone involved. Besides the enjoyment it brings, the game also serves as a fundraiser for the programs at Dutton Farms. In our most recent game, we raised over $1,000 to support their impactful initiatives.
At OCS, we believe in fostering global connections and making a difference beyond our immediate community. A focus on International Missions helps instill compassion, empathy, and a global perspective in our students. We currently have an annual missions trip to the Dominican Republic and we are committed to expanding the international opportunities available to our OCS students.
