   COVID-19 has the news buzzing. People have been working virtually, many businesses have closed down, and many have been asked to stay at home. 

   With an unexpected turn of events, it is easy to look at the negatives. However, positive news and stories that exist might be overlooked.     

   In Colorado, 71-year-old Renee Hellman has isolated herself in her home to minimize her risk of getting the virus. Her neighbor, Karen Eveleth, has trained her dog to bring her neighbor groceries, mail, and diners according to goodnewsnetwork.org.

    According to msn.com, a man whose identity is unknown in New Jersey was seen holding a sign above his head outside of Morristown Medical Center. The sign read: “Thank you all in emergency for saving my wife’s life; I love you all.” 

   An unknown woman in Maryland has been leaving bagged lunches out to anyone who needs them during the pandemic. The table is located at a busy intersection in Severna Park and is stocked from 11AM to 1:30PM according to goodnewsnetwork.org. She has left hundreds of lunches over the past several weeks. 

   Throughout the nation, according to goodnewsnetwork.org, animals in shelters are finding temporary homes faster than before during this time. Even furry friends are getting some help from their communities.
