2 Churches in Lake County Provide Funding for Prescription Assistance Program – News-Herald

Two local churches said they would support a local program that offers free prescriptions to patients with difficulties.

The move comes weeks after Ohio’s Prescription Assistance Program Announced a possible closure in September If you do not receive funding.

President Joel Lucia noted that a donation of $30,000 from Advent of the Lutheran Church in Mentor It will cover its costs for half a year, while First Church, Congregation in Painesville It has also offered $1,000 in funding. The program continues to look to raise support through online fundraising and mail donations.

Lucia said that if the program received $30,000 to another $35,000, it would have enough funding for a year. He hopes to use that time to “put the program on solid ground”.
