No one should have to choose between food and medicine. But they do. Every day, people in our community cut their pills in half, skip doses, or can't fill prescriptions because of the high cost.

United Way recognizes how vitally important good health is in our community. Improving and promoting the health of individuals is one of our focus areas. We are pleased to be working with our local community partners to introduce and promote the FamilyWize prescription drug discount program.These discount cards are offered FREE of charge and there is no enrollment is needed.

The goal of this community partnership is to reduce the cost of medicine for children, families, and individuals with no prescription drug coverage. FamilyWize cards are being distributed free of charge nationwide by participating United Ways and other partners.
