CRxSP Needs Your Help With Dials For Dollars 4-13-2011

The non-profit Community Prescription Support Program (CRxSP) was established eight years ago in Saginaw County as a part of St. Mary's Hospital. Residents say it provides valuable service to those who cannot afford needed medications. Wednesday, CRxSP is asking for help from the community with it's Dials for Dollars fundraising drive.
It supplies medication to Saginaw areas residents who are low income, self employed, uninsured, and those from other walks of life who can't afford the medications they really need.
The clinic now serves around 30-40 clients a day, and those who receive its services say it really makes a difference in their life.
Stephanie Stahl, a 26-year-old Saginaw Township resident, lost her medical coverage when she got married, and she says that there would be no way she could afford the medications she needs without CRxSP.
"I suffer from depression, OCD and a form of muscular dystrophy. The drug Seroquel has no generic form and costs me $400,"Stahl said. " CRxSP is the reason I can afford my medication; it helped me get my life back."
Now the center is looking for community support. It is no longer affiliated with St. Mary's and no longer benefits from free office space and supplies,according to Sister Sylvia Wozniak, who serves as chairwoman.
CRxSP will begin a fundraising drive on called Dials for Dollars with the goal of raising $130,000 in 30 days.
Those wishing to donate money or prescription samples may contact the center at:
100 S Jefferson Suite 101
Saginaw MI 48607
Monday, Tuesday or Friday
From 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
989-752-6000
You can also pledge donations via Facebook or Paypal.
