In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, people across the United States are finding time to help one another. Dave Baker gave a look at Thursday's good news.

Teachers nationwide are looking for ways to keep their students motivated while remote learning. In Rosemount, Minnesota, two teachers surprised their students with inspirational messages written in chalk on their driveways.

It wasn't just a "See you soon!", each student got a personalized message from their teachers, like "l love your laugh!" or "You are hard-working, loved and missed."

Local businesses are finding ways to adapt to social distancing measures.

For the Grain Brewing Company and Spring Gate Vineyard in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania that means offering beer and wine via delivery. The brewery is also offering takeout and curbside pickup.

Not wanting to see his products go to waste, a Birmingham florist is giving away thousands of flowers to help other local businesses.

Cameron Pappas, who owns Norton's Florist, says he can't make deliveries or operate for now. So, he's giving his roses, daises and mums to restaurants to, in turn, give to customers with curbside sales.

Those are just some of the good news stories making headlines on Thursday, March 26.
