The poor and uninsured in Summerville struggle to get the necessary medications for their basic health care needs. Often they are given prescriptions upon discharge from the hospital that they cannot afford to get filled. Also medications are often the first thing to be put aside when folks who are poor, homeless and or receive their health care from free medical clinics have other financial demands like food. This winter season has seen a spike in upper respiratory infections, bronchitis and pneumonia with many hospitalizations.

Change for a Dollar has a relationship with a local pharmacy where they offer a discount on medications and Change for a Dollar paid for those prescriptions.
