How You Can Help

Volunteer

  • Individuals – If you are interested in volunteering at the Charitable Pharmacy and can offer a consistent time, we need your help! No license is required to volunteer, however every task will need to be supervised by a licensed pharmacist.

  • Volunteer Pharmacists – Licensed pharmacists can earn Continuing Education Units by volunteering. Volunteer pharmacists work side-by-side with our staff pharmacists.

Donate

  • Donating Medication
    • Over 85% of prescriptions filled by the SVDP Charitable Pharmacy are from donated sources, allowing us to provide a consistent supply of medications for our neighbors in need.
    • As of June 2023, the SVDP Charitable Pharmacy is able to accept donations of unused, non-expired insulin, inhalers and blood thinners (e.g. Eliquis, Xarelto). At this time, the Charitable Pharmacy is not accepting donations of other types of medications.
    • Donations must be given to a licensed member of SVDP Pharmacy staff in person by the owner of the medication or the owner’s caregiver. The owner of the medication is the person whose name is on the original Rx label.
    • All medication donations must be made at SVDP’s Neyer Outreach Center, located at 1146 Bank Street, Cincinnati, OH 45214. Please check in with the front desk and allow at least 15 minutes to meet with Pharmacy staff to complete donation paperwork.
    • For questions or more details, please call 513-562-8841, ext. 963.
  • Physician offices, pharmacies and wholesalers – We are in need of donations of sample medication from physician offices, and pharmaceuticals from long-term care pharmacies. For more information about donating drug samples from a physician’s office, please click here.
  • Financial Donations
    • For every $1 donated, the Charitable Pharmacy is able to dispense $11 worth of medications. Please consider making a donation online, or contact Kaytlynd Lainhart, VP of External Relations, at 513-345-4918.
