Pa. pizza shop delivers medicines during cold snapJanuary 8, 2014 @ 6:42 am
LIGONIER, Pa. (AP) - A western Pennsylvania pizza shop has been delivering prescription medicines and other supplies to ill and elderly residents so they don't have to go outside in the bitter cold.
Tom Wynkoop, owner of Fox's Pizza Den in Ligonier, tells WPXI-TV ( http://bit.ly/1eGXJQ0) that he tweeted his offer because his community about 45 miles east of Pittsburgh has a lot of elderly residents.
Wynkoop told those in need to call his cellphone to arrange deliveries of prescription medicines and other products _ no strings attached. That's right: Folks don't have to order food from Wynkoop's shop to get help.
Wynkoop says his shop has made four deliveries. He says, "You have to be there for your residents."
The region was hit with record-low, subzero temperatures on Tuesday. Temperatures were subfreezing by Wednesday.
