People Doing Beautiful Things During These Troubled Times

Some Folks in Charleston are Getting it Right!

From the City Paper Editorial Staff (Charleston, SC), here are:

Nine glimmers of generosity as Charleston works through a crisis

  1. Family flies 'joke of the day' flags to lift neighbors' spirits; HOA shuts them down (for now); they shift production to a 'mask factory' - donating hundreds of masks to local workers.

  2. AMOR Healing Kitchen is continuing to put hot meals on the tables of customers who cannot go to the grocery store while they recover from surgeries or medical treatments.

  3. Local artist creates paintings for healthcare workers.

  4. Charleston Police Officers give out 6,000 Easter Eggs - and hundreds of "virtual high-5's" to local Kids

  5. Photographer Corbett Tripler creates fun chalk backgrounds for neighborhood portraits

  6. Rodney Scott's BBQ on King Street is also providing half-price food for all first responders, health care workers, and federal employees during the pandemic. "It's going to be going on until we return to normalcy," Merrell says. "As long as our people are at risk, we're going to take care of them."

  7. D'Allisandro's Pizza delivers pies to grocery store employees around town.

  8. Lowcountry Food Bank fills the gap for those feeling the pinch. "During a normal month, the Lowcountry Food Bank's on-site emergency food pantry sees about 125 visitors. Over the first week of April, more than 400 people visited as residents began feeling the pressure of food insecurity from coronavirus-related closures."

  9. Mask-makers buffer the medical community's tight supplies
