We hope you, your families and your friends are healthy and making the most of this time.  Here is some good news from the past week to brighten your day and take you into the weekend.

In Georgia:

  • Our own Georgia-based Chick-Fil-A is donating $10.8 million to first responders.

In the US and Around the Globe:

  • Over 630,000 people have recovered from COVID-19.
  • US companies are stepping up to help with the fight against COVID-19.
