I'm Destinee and this is where I share my life, my work, and my heart. As an activist and multi-passionate creative, you'll find a little bit of everything I love here. I may not be for everyone, but I hope that you'll feel welcomed, encouraged, and inspired from this online space.
If you’ve ordered anything online lately, you probably have a good idea of how hard our delivery workers are working. They work long hours to get our packages, groceries, food, and supplies to us in a timely manner. I couldn’t have pushed through this year without them. I am so thankful for our postal workers, FedEx, UPS, and Amazon drivers, and food/grocery delivery independent contractors.
I’ve wanted to do something like this for years. I just never got around to doing it, but this year felt like the perfect time! Many are working overtime just to make access to basic necessities possible. And unfortunately, their work often goes under appreciated.
How to Set it Up
If you clicked on this post, you probably want to do something like this for your delivery workers. I think that’s amazing! I’ve made it a little easier for you by designing a printable “Thank You” sign for you to attach to your porch basket. You can do as little or as much as you want to. It could be as simple as getting a bag of Hershey’s Kisses and putting them in a bowl on the porch.
I had a little bar cart that was just collecting dust in my basement; so I loaded it up with a basket of chips and snacks, as well as bottled waters, sodas, and juice. I chose to do bottles over cans because they’re easier for them to have in their vehicles without spilling. In the drawer of the cart, I added individual bags of cookies, granola bars, candy, and rice krispies treats. I added the bottle of hand sanitizer so they felt safe choosing their treats. It’s not much, but I hope that it helps brighten my delivery worker’s day and makes them feel appreciated. I hope to make this an annual tradition!
If you use the sign I designed, please tag me on social media so I can see! I’d love to see what you came up with. You can sign up at the bottom of this post to download the printable sign. I made it available in both color and black/white for your convenience.
