WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

  • A family in South Carolina wanted to bless a hard-working Domino’s delivery driver by giving her a generous tip.
  • The family created a GoFundMe account for 72-year-old Barbara Gillespie, who was about to retire, and the fundraiser raised over $262,000.
  • Gillespie’s last day with Domino’s was Thursday, Feb. 16, and she plans to take a cruise and travel to Europe during her retirement.

A South Carolina family witnessed a Domino’s employee fall while delivering pizzas to their home earlier this month and wanted to bless the hard-working woman, who was about to retire, by giving her a generous tip. Lacey Keighron and her family decided to create a GoFundMe account to give the final “tip” for 72-year-old Barbara Gillespie as much exposure as possible. Keighron shared the fundraiser on her Facebook page and it took off, raising over $262,000 for the delivery driver as of Thursday night.

In a TikTok update on Feb. 9, Keighron said Gillespie put in her two-week notice and is “officially retiring.” Gillespie’s last day with Domino’s was Thursday, Feb. 16, according to The State. The family talks with Gillespie on a daily basis and was motivated to bless her because both Keighron’s father and father-in-law retired late in life and both died from terminal cancer.


In 2022, Gillespie was honored with her store’s Team Member of the Year award. Domino’s said Gillespie is a “beloved member of our family” and a “favorite of our customers.” Gillespie plans to take a cruise and travel to Europe during her retirement, thanks to the generosity of Keighron and her family and the support of the community.
