Olive Veronesi is truly quarantine ( and grandma) goals.
In the throws of a global pandemic, we need to look out for those most vulnerable. Unfortunately, that means that our elderly parents and grandparents need to stay at home cocooned in safety. As a result, there are plenty of pictures circulating the internet of family members interacting with their elders through the windows of their homes.
It also means that many of us are having to bring items to our elderly neighbors and family members so as to help them avoid making dangerous treks into the stores for supplies. Naturally, this means that many seniors have come up with clever ways of making sure others know what they need – like one 93-year-old legend who made a sign to let people know she was running low on her quarantine supplies: beer.

Olive Veronesi, from Pittsburgh, made a sign letting her neighbors know that she needed some beer. And it wasn’t just any beer, it was Coors Light. The sign was captured in a picture, which quickly found it’s way to the Internet. It went viral, attracting lots of attention, including that of the Coors Light brand itself!
The company had quite the surprise in store for the adorable elderly woman who wrote the now-famous sign that said, “I need more beer!!” while holding up a can of Coors. The CBS affiliate KDKA-TV reported that Olive was surprised with 150 cans of Coors.
