NEW YORK (AP) — Since March 17th, a daily series called “One Good Thing” reflects the unheralded sacrifices everyday people make to benefit others that might go unnoticed, but deserve to be told.

Themes have emerged around music, meals and the making and delivery of lifesaving supplies. Favorites include the Rio firefighter, who high on his hydraulic perch, plays the trumpet for cooped-up residents or the 16-year-old Virginia resident who flies medical supplies to rural areas of the state.

There have been meals from Brooklyn caterer Israel Frischman for Holocaust survivors who are shut in. The day after the story ran, donations poured in and now Frischman has financial backing for the needed meals.
