As severe snowstorms blanketed the U.S. this week, a Fox’s Pizza Den manager was braving the cold to make special deliveries – but not the ones you would expect.

In this Facebook post, manager Tom Wynkoop offered to deliver prescription medications to people who couldn’t leave their homes in the frigid weather conditions:

Since word of the story broke, this Good Samaritan has been receiving cash from all over the world. Wynkoop has decided to match the donations and send them to the local Meals on Wheels.

Many baffled onlookers have asked Wynkoop why he would go to all this trouble to help the elderly. To them, he has the perfect answer: “We just did it to be part of our community. Help somebody that needs help. Don’t be afraid.”

Now that’s advice we could all stand to follow more often.
