For over the past 50 years the
United Way has been building a better and stronger Salem
County. Our mission can be described in two simple
words: LIVE UNITED!
To LIVE UNITED
means to work together to create positive, lasting change in
our community; change that results in people having access
to quality healthcare, children making healthy choices and
being ready for school, those in need having access to basic
needs and services, and a senior population that is strong
Our goals are to
address the needs in our community, to create long-lasting
changes that prevent problems from happening in the first
place. We invite everyone to be part of the change.
Together, united, we can inspire hope and create
opportunities for a better tomorrow.

The FamilyWize Prescription Drug
Discount Card enables you to receive discounted pricing on
prescription drugs. This is not insurance. Rather, it is a
program that offers immediate discounts on prescription
drugs at participating pharmacies. Simply present your card
with each prescription from your doctor to the participating
pharmacy at the time of purchase to receive your discounts.
If you need to transfer a prescription, bring your empty
prescription bottle or label with you to the pharmacy.
Save an average of 20% off the
pharmacy's usual and customary retail price of prescription
drugs, with the highest savings on generic drugs.
Your cost for medication will be
the discount price offered through this program, or the
pharmacy's usual and customary retail price, whichever is
lower. This means you are assured the lowest price in that
store, at the time you purchase the medication. If the
pharmacy's price is lower, there is no savings or discount.
