How can FamilyWize cards be free?
The nation-wide FamilyWize Community Service Partnership brings together service-oriented companies and organizations. Each partner donates in-kind services to do what it can to reduce the cost of medicine for people across the country struggling to get the medicine they need. Participating pharmacies provide the savings and many other businesses provide donated printing, shipping, paper and promotion.
