 I wanted to thank you for partnering with us again this year. This pandemic has affected everyone, but especially those most vulnerable. Your generous support will allow us to continue serving patients in Transylvania Co., helping to ensure they do not go without their needed medication. As you may know 85% of our patients are on a medication for a chronic illness and 42% are on behavioral health meds. With numbers like these, it is essential for us to keep our doors open and continue serving every eligible patient in Transylvania County. Your funding also covers a mobile pharmacy event, which will help bring nearly $100k in over-the-counter medicines into your community for those who need it most.
