Susan Cosgrove Barnes always finds a way to help out. She lists the Branford Compassion Club, Feed Branford Kids, and the Blackstone Library as the “current” non-profits she’s involved with but gives a knowing laugh. There are always groups that benefit from her time and support. One of the founding members of Feed Branford Kids, Susan notes that every organization she’s worked with has had its own real rewards, helping out wherever she can. She attributes the success of the groups she’s been involved with to the overall generosity of Branford. “Something happens and half the community steps right up to the plate,” she says. Perhaps they’ve taken a cue from Susan.
