WGRT's On the Bright Side This Week's Good News

On the Bright Side

We’ve been asking our listeners and customers to share the things that are inspiring them as we all cope with the changes the last few weeks have brought. In our effort to contribute to the encouraging that are happening in the community, we will begin sharing a recap of the week’s good news. You can find it on our news page and social media each weekend, and listen every Monday to get your week off to a positive start.

Here’s a look on the the bright side for this week:

Best friends Cynthia Hutar (an upcoming LIMElight guest!) and Coryn Cess shared an idea that inspired them about people painting rainbows in their house windows. That conversation turned into a Facebook post, that turned into a Facebook group that has over 130,000 members in just over 2 weeks. Creativity abounds as more and more people join in and to spread the message of hope. #RainbowsOverMichigan

Happy’s Pizza in Port Huron took their pizza-making skills to a whole new level this week when they made and delivered lunch to 300 people at Lake Huron Medical Center in appreciation of their work on the front line of the coronavirus pandemic in our area.

Kel-Gor Limited, an industrial contracting firm in Sarnia, presented a $25,000 check to The Inn of the Good Shepherd this week to offset the devastating effects of lost food and fundraising efforts the nonprofit has sustained in the last few weeks. The funds will allow The Inn to purchase food and provide shelter for those in need.
