The FamilyWize Community Service Partnership, Inc., the national nonprofit that is aligned with the United Way in providing free prescription drug discount cards, has announced that $1 billion in savings was reached on March 2, 2016.
This is $1 billion saved by families across the country since the FamilyWize partnership began in 2005. It’s cause for celebration when that much money has been saved by people everywhere in this day and age when necessary medications are needed for good health.
In the Green Mountain United Way five-county region, those savings translate to approximately $237,456 helping nearly 2,000 people.
GMUW and FamilyWize look forward to continuing the partnership to improve the health and wellness of our people.
