Title says it all-post what good events you are aware of where people have helped others during this damn bug. Lets see some good news, and what America is really about.

JoAnn Fabrics donating materials and thousands of stitchers sewing masks for first responders. The same masks that the CDC is now telling everyone to wear.

I do think the ladies making cloth masks in the community are terrific. I bought some yesterday

And all those who are going out of their way to order from our local restaurants. We're doing the best we can in that regard. I hope they can make enough to get by until this is over.

Our local diner here has been opening only on weekends for breakfast during this, but they've been doing great business for those few hours. Last weekend, they dressed up in 50's attire and had a musician playing 50's music in the parking lot while people were waiting in their cars for their food to be brought out. Makes it a fun community experience.

Our small contribution-our motorcycle group put on a "feed the truckers" event at a local weigh station. Burgers, tater salad, and some sides. We depend so much on truckers, but many truck stops are shut down and many fast-food places won't serve them if the walk up to the drive-thru.

Good for you and your group!


I just saw a sign on top of the neighbor's truck, saying "Honk for the Birthday Girl"! Lots of people honking! How sad that a child has to forego a birthday party!



We also have people putting hearts and bears up in their windows so that parents can pile kids in the car and they can drive around town, counting the hearts and bears. A good way to get them out of the house for a while.

Wow! Isn't it pathetic that nobody can take a second to post in this thread? Not political enough I guess.


Bump.

No one is allowed to help.

Groups of 1 only. Can't work together.

Snitches get rewards in LA.

One thing that I am seeing is a lot of people are being polite and kind to others around them. While they are keeping their distances, I see people smiling at each other, saying things like "Stay safe", and generally trying to comfort others.

I make it a point to thank people who are still working to keep us safe and fed, and I also thank the people who have the job of wiping off shopping cart handles, etc.

Small business puts in big effort to clean Tyler's parks

On Friday, Carlos Sanchez, and his father, Marco Sanchez, were in Woldert Park disinfecting playground equipment alternating between a sodium hypochlorite solution, and rinsing the solution away with water. Sodium hypochlorite is the active ingredient in bleach.
...
The business owner offered to do this for the city for free.

"We have to adjust and do our own part, whether as a business or as an individual," he said.
