Pat Shingleton: "Fill a prescription for the needy"

1 year ago April 20, 2014 Apr 20, 2014 Sunday, April 20 2014 Sunday, April 20, 2014 3:08:39 PM EDT in Pat Shingleton Column

Seventeen years ago Dr. Redfield Bryan and Father Mike Moroney asked me to construct a campaign to assist the St. Vincent de Paul Pharmacy. For the last 40 days and since 1999, "Fill a Prescription for the Needy" has raised nearly $980,000 in contributions from our community to provide life sustaining prescriptions for those who can't afford needed medicine. Michael Alcaldo, C.E.O. of St. Vincent de Paul noted that this campaign occurs at an important time of the year for the elderly and poor. The success of such a campaign is more than just the spokesperson as Lisa Hubble, Kay Kyes, Joe Cronan, Charlie Sides and a host of others tirelessly assist throughout the year. Most importantly thanks to all who deposited contributions into our canisters.
