LIGONIER, Pa. - With bitter cold temperatures keeping people indoors, a pizza shop owner in Ligonier offered to make deliveries of prescriptions and other essentials to people with medical problems.

Tom Wynkoop of Fox's Pizza Den tweeted, “This goes out to our valued customers.  If you have any medical history that involves respiratory issues, PLEASE, PLEASE do not attempt to leave the house.  Due to the extreme weather conditions, please call my cell phone and I will do everything in my power to have things brought to you (medications, food, etc.).  No food ordering required.”

“I know it’s hard for elderly people to get out and we live in an elderly community, and we’re small.  You have to be there for your residents,” Wynkoop told Channel 11.

Wynkoop said he has made four deliveries, no strings attached.
