Adrienne Gallagher is a wife, mother, entrepreneur, and she recently founded a new project called Doorstep Drop, a nomination style gift shop that is spreading joy and delivering FREE gift boxes to healthcare heroes.
When the covid-19 pandemic escalated in the U.S., Adrienne put her life on hold (besides being a wife and mother, of course), and decided to put her time, talents, connections, and her life into action – and started Doorstep Drop, a free gift shop, delivering boxes of gratitude, love, and treats to our healthcare heroes who are working around the clock to treat the sick and to save lives.
Adrienne started by simply looking around her house for snacks, treats, coffee, candles, bath bombs, and anything else she thought might make a good addition to gift boxes for healthcare workers. As she collected items, she began putting together boxes and delivering them to healthcare workers she knew through her friends and throughout her network, and then those recipients began reaching out to nominate other healthcare workers who could use a little extra love during this difficult time.
This project has grown and evolved from there – and in a very short amount of time. Adrienne has delivered countless gift boxes throughout Northern VA and the Washington, D.C. area, and has sent a few special packages to healthcare heroes around the country. Adrienne [with the support of her mom (who has sewn hundreds of PPE masks, which they’ve included in some boxes and delivered the rest to hospitals), her husband, and her two sweet boys – who are often her little travel buddies, as she drives around delivering these boxes] has accomplished so much in a such a short period of time, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this incredible woman and this project.
Adrienne is a reminder that we can all do something to help others during this time, and even when things get better – we can (and we should!) all do something in our daily lives to help others.
Adrienne joins the 1 Girl Revolution podcast to share her own life story, how Doorstep Drop came to be, more about her work throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, stories about the healthcare heroes Doorstep Drop has served, what Adrienne hopes the future holds for Doorstep Drop, what we can all do to show gratitude for our healthcare heroes and how we can all do something to shower them with love, and so much more!
