Messages For Meds is CommunityHealth’s online giving campaign, completely volunteer driven by residents, staff, students and volunteers to fundraise for CommunityHealth's MedAccess Pharmacy.
Accessing affordable prescription medications is one of the greatest challenges facing low-income, uninsured individuals; even a small fee through low-cost retail pharmacy programs can be cost-prohibitive. Last year, over 30,000 prescriptions were filled at CommunityHealth’s MedAccess Pharmacy at no cost to our patients. We're fortunate to have many supporters and partners that donate medications to our pharmacy, but for those that are not donated we have to purchase to ensure patients have access to the treatments they need to get better.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 through this campaign to offset the costs associated with medications that are necessary to our patients’ health care needs. Help us stop sickness before it starts so we can make Chicago a healthier place for everyone. #MessagesForMeds
