A 93-year-old woman from Pennsylvania followed the government’s social distancing protocol as COVID-19 cases continue to soar. Her age group is one of the most susceptible from severe illness brought by the virus.
However, Olive Veronesi was down to her last 12 cans of beer when she held up a signage last 12 April 2020, saying she needed more beers. To help her grandmother get her essential needs, a relative snapped out a picture while the elder woman was holding her Coors beer. As of writing, the post has garnered 28,000 likes and 51,000 shares as posted on the KDKA-TV-CSB Pittsburgh.
In an interview of CBS Pittsburgh, Mrs. Veronesi shared her love for the beverage, saying she drinks beer every night. “Something to relax, you know, I think it’s nice — something for a young lady,” she said.
Molson Coors Beverage Company, the maker of the old lady’s favorite drink Coors Light, heeded her plea and delivered 150 cans of beers three days later. However, KDKA TV reported that thousands of people have been eagerly reaching out to Mrs. Veronesi after the photo was posted.
Asked what she felt after the delivery, she said “”I can still kick a football and if you like, hit a home run!”
