In 2018, Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy dispensed over 31,000 prescriptions to over 1690 individuals in their 4-county service area. These prescriptions had a retail value of $2.8 million. Ozanam serves qualified adults between the ages of 19-65 who have no insurance and are unable to afford life-sustaining prescription medications. These local residents are often working 2 or 3 jobs but still may have to make the choice between prescription medications or putting food on the table for their families. Ozanam is a community based free pharmacy and we need your help more than ever this year. Because of rising cost of insulin and other prescription needs.

Please join in the fun on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at Azalea Manor to help provide life-sustaining medications for those in need. All net proceeds go to Ozanam Charitable Pharmacy.
