CENTERVILLE, OH-- Extremely cold weather can make life very difficult for older citizens, especially those needing help doing simple but necessary tasks like grocery shopping. 

Simple tasks like getting from the car to the door can be treacherous. 
But one organization is helping make life easier for area seniors. 

World War 2 veteran Jim Losh gets help from a "Cold Weather Companion" 

"It's been wonderful," he said. 
"We couldn't do it without her, she's been really great," his wife Janet added. 

"It can be a great safety net to have somebody coming over on a daily basis checking, making sure the furnace is still working, windows are shut," Synergy Director of Operations Mike Jones said while meeting with the Losh's.
