NC MedAssist in collaboration with Raleigh Parks will host a local Mobile Free Pharmacy Event sponsored by Alliance Health on Friday, June 2, 2023, from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm at Roberts Community Center | 1300 East Martin Street | Raleigh | NC | 27610. This free medicine giveaway is open to individuals 18 and older and families needing over-the-counter (OTC) medication items. No registration or identification is required, and there are no income restrictions. Everyone is qualified.
Participants will be able to learn more about NC MedAssist’s free prescription pharmacy program and receive free OTC items such as cough and cold medicine, vitamins, children’s, allergy medication, and first aid supplies. Monarch Wake Behavioral Health Urgent Care will give out health information as well. The event will occur rain or shine, and all OTC items will be given first-come, first-serve while supplies last.

NC MedAssist’s overall goal is to help ease the burden of those in need by aiding people who have been forced to decide between buying food and purchasing life-saving medication.
