Trucker ranks at the top of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ list of most dangerous jobs in terms of worker fatalities, and since March, truckers have been tirelessly delivering supplies to hospitals and grocery stores. Samsara recently developed new A.I. safety features for dash cams to ensure drivers make it home safely. The company’s cameras interpret road scenes and driver behavior to detect distracted driving or tailgating, triggering real-time, in-cab alerts. When Covid-19 made New York City commercial ambulance provider SeniorCare EMS busier than ever, the company turned to Samsara’s AI-enabled dash cams.

The company also set up a free shopping day in a local building to provide everything from clothes to toys. Senior Shopping Service contributed $25,000 for this Care and Share program.

Many Americans learn about whiskey through Jack Daniel, but Jack learned to distill from an enslaved man named Nearest Green, a.k.a Uncle Nearest. After reading an article about Green, bestselling writer Fawn Weaver learned that his old distillery was up for sale. So she bought it, resurrected it, and hired Nearest's great-great granddaughter to be master distiller. In only three years, Uncle Nearest's blends have won more than 150 awards and the company's revenue has grown over 3,000 percent. Weaver has created one of the few companies in the field with an all-female executive team and an all-minority board as it celebrates the legacy of a heretofore unknown, formative American craftsman and reclaims the lost heritage of an iconic American brand. Weaver has given back by donating 300,000 face masks to first responders and sponsoring initiatives to encourage people of color to enter the spirits industry and help small Black-owned brands succeed.
