cs_16_1In a tribute to the idea and experience of service, Milton Academy students fanned out from sites on campus to locations all over Boston to help at a range of projects for a full morning. Students brought their energy to many projects: they cleaned at the Dorchester YMCA and played with children; raked and prepared flower beds at the Franklin Park Zoo; staged a field day on the Academy campus for Boston elementary students from the Taylor School; finished an indoor painting project at the New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans; prepared meals at Rosie’s Place; sorted food at the Boston Food Bank; hosted Epiphany School students for workshops in science, music and art; painted the playground at Chittick Elementary School in Mattapan; did grounds work in town at the Milton DPW, Milton parks, schools and town hall; took on spring cleaning at the Boston Family Shelter; and cleaned exhibit cases at the Trailside Museum. In total, more than 700 students helped close to home and across the city.
