I am a Board member and a volunteer. The program is a huge safety-net for many people that are struggling. It is a pleasure to work with the clients as the volunteers get as much out of helping the clients than the clients get from us.

Daily I pray that we continue to have the resources needed to continue this ministry. Rresources include dedicated volunteers with a variety of skills and the funding needed to keep this ministry open for those who come. Some come once or twice because they can't afford their medications- help through a rough time, but others come monthly because they have no money nor insurance for medications. It is blessing for those served, but it is also blessing to me. I admire and respect those I meet through this ministry and feel blessed that I am able to be a part of this important ministry in Saginaw. as volunteer and board member.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

have enough volunteers and paid staff so clients would be served more timely.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Though currently I am a Board member, I have been volunteering 20--30 hours weekly since the Fall of 2002 when Sr. Phyllis Klonowski, OP, who was urged to begin this ministry, invited me to join her in a tiny office located in the Marie Davis Senior Center. Over the years I've done many tasks but my hoaned specialty is Intake: interviewing new clients, collecting needed documents, referring individuals to other resources, and processing pharmeeutical company forms so on going medications are available each month. Due to the generosity of others, clients usually receive medications on their first visit. This is especially important for those coming from ER or as hospital discharges. It has been a blessing to minister to so many individuals over the years. As others have learned from me, I have learned so much during our time together. I believe that this working together builds, community and healthier individuals.

CRxSP serves a wide range of individuals and families including those who have:
 No prescription insurance
 Low income
 Medicare D eligibility (donut hole)
 Unemployed/seasonal employment
 Medicaid with a spend down
 Saginaw Health Plan B

Very often individuals who at one time were able to afford their medications are now unable to because of loss of work, illness that prevents them from working, etc.

The medications distributed by CRxSP treat a wide range of health conditions including diabetes, heart conditions, high blood pressure, cancer, neurological disorders, mental health, asthma and arthritis. If it were not for CRxSP, there would be thousands of Saginaw County residents unable to receive their desperately needed medications. CRxSP does NOT charge patients a fee for our services.
