RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia This Morning is everywhere you are! Each weekday morning, we check in with our viewers and friends of the show to see what they’ve been up to.

Lower school students at The Steward School are reminding everyone the importance of using soap and water. They even made a song about it! Music teacher Samson Trinh made it all happen. He taught the students the catchy song and moves and then had them send in videos of themselves having fun, dancing around and lip syncing. Then, Samson edited all 90 video submissions into a one-minute music video. Click here to watch the video on YouTube.

The historic Virginia Diner in Wakefield is donating meals to frontline workers, elderly neighbors who can’t get out of the house right now and others in need. Their goal is 2,000 meals — and they’re well on their way! The diner normally sees about 200,000 guests a year. Many off them are tourists or visitors, so things have obviously slowed down for the team, even though they are offering carry-out. The diner is committed to keeping its staff employed, so they launched a campaign. You can donate $12 to feed someone a delicious homemade meal, and the diner will match it. That means each $12 donation will feed two people. If you’d like to contribute or learn more about the campaign, click here.

Our talented director at Virginia This Morning, Jake, shared photos of the critters around the house. His dog Mowgli is out enjoying the weather while Fiona the cat is thinking about food.
