With bitter cold temperatures forcing people to stay indoors, one pizza shop owner in Ligonier, Pa., decided to give his elderly customers a helping hand.

Fox’s Pizza Den Tom Wynkoop told his “valued customers” via Twitter that he would deliver whatever necessities they may need so they don’t have to brave the cold — no strings attached, Channel 11 first reported.

“If you have any medical history that involves respiratory issues, PLEASE, PLEASE do not attempt to leave the house,” he said. “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.”

Mr. Wynkoop told the station that his shop is located in an elderly community, and “you have to be there for your residents.”
