Free over the counter medicine giveaway set for this weekend

Local

AccessEast and NC MedAssist are hosting a free over the counter medicine giveaway in Greenville this weekend.

Medications that are not covered by insurance will also be offered.

Anyone can stop by and get up to 5 free items, everything from Band-Aids to Advil and Claritin.

They say this is especially important this time of year because a lot of people are fighting the flu or a cold.

Lynn Howard is a social work health manager with Health Assist, she said,

“Hopefully that’ll keep everyone healthy, keep them out of the emergency room, and hopefully this will make a difference in their overall health.”

The event is this Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm.

It will be held at Saint James Methodist Church on East 6th Street, and it is free to attend.
