Branford high school students clean up animal shelter, American Legion Hall

New Haven

A little rain didn’t stop students at Branford High School from giving back to their town on Friday. 

They helped clean up the Branford Animal Shelter and the town’s American Legion Hall by planting flowers and sprucing up the lawns. 

Alyssa Simpson, a senior at Branford High School said, “It feels really good, we do a lot of community service, it’s just giving back to our town, community, it’s just a great feeling.”

Salvatore Zarra, a teacher at Branford High School said, “Every year it gets a little bigger, a little larger, and it all comes from the heart.”

The students are part of the Horizons Program at Branford High, which is an alternative education program for at-risk youth. They hold their clean-up every spring.
