Volunteers from any of the health professions are needed to assist us with our main lobby service to check-in patients, and hand off their medications. Protective gear will be provided while on site. Ozanam continues to observe CDC guidelines for thoroughly disinfecting our lobby, service counters, offices, and restrooms, as well as regular hand washing and use of hand sanitizer, throughout each day.
As the only, stand-alone licensed Charitable Pharmacy, Ozanam is the Medication Safety Net for 1704 uninsured patients residing in Mobile, Baldwin, Escambia Washington, and Mobile counties. Low income, working poor, and homeless patients rely on Ozanam Pharmacy to assist them with managing their chronic illnesses, such as heart disease and diabetes. Ozanam Pharmacy is closely monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) concerning the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). We are also actively engaged with our national and state agencies, partners, and the local healthcare community to share updates and to coordinate efforts wherever possible, should the need arise.
At this time, Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy will continue to operate as usual. Our normal business hours of Monday through Thursday, from 9 am to 2:30 pm, remain in effect.

An amazing crowd of 200 cool cowboys and cowgirls gathered to eat, drink, and dance the night away on November 7th in support of Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy’s recent “Wild Wild West Fundraiser!” On a raining night, with a tornado having touched-down just blocks away from Ezell House, the party was in full swing. The incredible RuffWater Band filled the entire place with an eclectic variety of country, soft rock, jazz and R & B rhythms that pleased an enthusiastic crowd.. all decked out in their Wild West Best attire! The taco and chili bar with all of the trimmings was also a huge hit, as was the fun-filled photo booth. Raffle prize winners were thrilled with awesome gift baskets, the Apple iWatch and overnight stys at our best local hotels! We are excited for the opportunity to bring this exciting event back next year, with a few new surprises, so stay tuned!
A wealth of gratitude is due to our incredible list of Wild Wild West Fundraiser sponsors and community partners:
The Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy office and grounds were blessed with an abundance of “TLC” on October 19, 2019. The incredible management and staff of Ingalls Shipbuilding chose Ozanam as the focus of their “Annual Day of Caring” community service program. The program is an opportunity for Ingalls Shipbuilding employees to give back to the Mobile County community. Over the course of a day, Ingalls employees complete various maintenance projects. Here at Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy (OCP), the Ingalls Shipbuilding staff pruned the small trees and shrubs surrounding the exterior of the building. They also vacuumed and shampooed the office carpeting, cleaned the office furniture and counters. Thanks to such a caring group of cheerful volunteers, OCP is looking “ship-shape” these days! Furthermore, OCP received an additional blessing, as Ingalls Shipbuilding President, Brian J. Cuccias, stopped by to present a donation check for $5,000.00, to Executive Director, Shearie Archer, to express the company’s appreciation and support for the services provided by OCP. The program also received news coverage from WKRG News 5. The fellowship we established during the activity didn’t stop that day…weeks later a few of the Annual Day of Caring participants attended Ozanam’s Wild Wild West Fundraiser! OCP welcomes opportunities to develop community partnerships.
For information on how your organization may get involved in supporting OCP, please contact Shearie Archer at email@example.com or call (251) 366-0713.
