About four years ago, Paxton Burns had an idea to set up a food box on the front yard of his home, allowing people to donate and pick up non-perishable food to help others in his community.

Two sisters from Nebraska who haven’t seen each other in 53 years were – amazingly – reunited, due to coronavirus.
Back in May, 73-year-old Doris Crippen ended up in the emergency room and battled back from coronavirus.
When Doris was released from the hospital, she had to spend some extra time getting some rehab work on her arm.
It was in the rehab center that she encountered a wonderful surprise … Her long-lost sister, 53-year-old Bev Boro, was working there.
Bev recognized Doris’ name on a patient board – and the lives of the two women changed forever.
Doris and Bev have the same father, but different mothers – and they haven’t seen each other in 53 years, when Bev was just a baby.
Doris admitted that she had tried to find her siblings several times over the years, but failed.
It ended up taking a global pandemic to, finally, bring these two women together… and inspire them to begin planning a family reunion. (WTTG-TV)

Five-year-old Wilbur Coleman of El Paso, Texas, has been working with his mom to create care packages for front line workers and those who are most vulnerable to the coronavirus.
