Barbara Gillespie is a 72-year-old retired school lunch lady and great-grandma in Charlestown, NC who segued into a job delivering pizzas for Domino’s because she needed the money to make ends meet.

America’s heart broke for her when doorbell camera footage was released showing her taking a tumble on a porch during a delivery. Homeowner Lacey Keighron and her husband immediately tended to her, though her first concern was ruining their dinner. They knew they needed to do something, so they started a GoFundMe and donations poured in!  They surprised her at Domino’s with flowers…and $234,000!  Gillespie says she can finally retire…and she’s now close with that family. They call her “Grandma Barbara”!
