Seniors from Shore Regional High School in West Long Branch, N.J., wanted to give something back to their community, which was hit by Hurricane Sandy, so they recently volunteered to pick up debris from area public beaches and assist with other beautification projects. "They are learning the value of being altruistic and giving back to the community," said Thomas Farrell, superintendent of Shore Regional and West Long Branch school districts. "This is just a start, because there is still a lot of work to be done here. But if there are students like these here to help, we're going to be OK."
