We’ve all heard the phrase not all heroes wear capes. A lot of them do wear masks though. Throughout the current COVID-19 pandemic a new roster of heroes has emerged. While the majority of us stayed home to stop the spread, these frontline heroes played an integral role in keeping our communities safe, healthy, connected, and well-stocked with essentials. From food services, to transportation, health care and home deliveries, these individuals deserve our deepest gratitude. We spoke with a number of frontline heroes to learn more about their experiences and share their stories.
