A hospital worker spends 10-hour days supporting doctors and nurses as they tend to the sickest COVID-19 patients in the unit. A small business owner, who runs one of the only grocery stores in an area of New Orleans that was devastated by Hurricane Katrina, helps those who've been laid off from their jobs.

"We are so proud to celebrate people who are doing so much to transform the lives of people in their communities.
