The Over the Counter (OTC) Medicine Program provides adults and children who are low-income and in need with free over the counter medicine. Medicine such as aspirin, children’s cough syrup, allergy medicine and vitamins are just a few items given to families who need assistance.
- Where does the medicine come from? Through a partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, NC MedAssist receives bi-weekly shipments of over the counter medicine that is sorted by volunteers and disbursed to adults and families who are less fortunate.
- Is the medicine free? YES! No I.D. required at all events! (must be 18 years or older to receive medicine)
- How can families receive the medicine? During scheduled Give Away Days, see dates below.
