Hormel Foods is a Fortune 500 company that comes from small town roots and now serves customers globally. Beginning next year, the company will offer two years of free college tuition to the children of its employees without consideration for the students' GPA or test scores. The students can attend any community college so long as they meet that college's enrollment requirements.

This program is such a great way for a company to give back to its employees.

For over 25 years, the Dreamweaver Foundation has served senior citizens by providing end-of-life dreams. The Dreamweaver Foundation has donated 300 video communication devices to senior citizens at no cost to them in order to make it easier for them to video chat with their loved ones, especially during quarantine. The reactions from the senior citizens that received the devices was overwhelmingly positive, as for some of them this was the first time they'd been able to see their loved ones in months, even through a screen. These devices are complete with modifications for easy use for senior citizens including large buttons.

Bringing families closer together, especially during quarantine, can be a life-changing thing. Feelings of loneliness are very tough among senior citizens, especially among those living in nursing homes and hospice centers, and this device is a great way to help them feel less isolated and more connected to their loved ones.
