CNN Heroes share messages of hope as they respond to the pandemic

During the best of times, CNN Heroes go above and beyond to fulfill their missions of serving others and making the world a better place. The Covid-19 pandemic has made their jobs much harder.

But CNN Heroes everywhere have quickly pivoted to keep their communities supported and connected in this age of quarantine and social distancing.
The restaurant shutdown forced Brandon Chrostowski to close the dining room at Edwin’s. The upscale restaurant is not only one of Cleveland’s finest eateries, but it is staffed almost entirely by people who were once incarcerated.
Chrostowski changed up Edwin’s menu to focus on homestyle takeout and delivery options. They moved the chairs and tables out of the dining area, transformed it into a store featuring baked goods and bottles of wine, and set up an outdoor grill cooking up steak and ribs.
