PERRY COUNTY - The United Way of Perry County has joined the national FamilyWize Partnership, which offers discount prescription cards to the uninsured.
Savings "come directly from the pharmacies themselves and we are so thankful for their generosity," said Rebecca Fenn, United Way director.
"All of our local pharmacies, Werner's, Wal-Mart and CVS, accept the discount cards, which save an average of about $17 per prescription."
The cards are available at Catholic Charities, local food pantries, schools, CVS and Wal-Mart. Or call 547-2577 or visit www.familywize.org.
