JACKSON - St. Luke's Episcopal Church presented The Foundation with a check for $14,000 to assist with the Dispensary of Hope Program. The Foundation began working with Dispensary of Hope in 2013. Dispensary of Hope is a national program that provides prescription medications to low income and indigent patients. The Foundation works with Jackson-Madison County General Hospital and the Family Health Center as a conduit to get the medications to those who need them the most. By providing prescription medications to qualified dispensaries at a low cost, medications, which would have gone unused, are now able to be utilized by those who would have gone without any medication.

For more information on Dispensary of Hope, please contact the Faith Health Center at (731) 215-2500.
