Donate Over-the-Counter and Prescription Meds

Updated March 18, 2021 by Fearrington Cares

The Chatham Cares Community Pharmacy (CCCP) in Siler City is a great place to donate medical items you no longer want or need. CCCP is a non-profit local organization providing quality pharmacy services to uninsured and underinsured residents of the county. They accept medical equipment that has been cleansed thoroughly or never used by a patient. They also accept supplies of all kinds (anything you can buy at a drugstore or medical supply store) and personal care items (soap, shampoo, lotion, deodorant, waterproof or disposable bed pads, adult underwear, urinals, disposable gloves, compression socks, bed risers, etc.).

The CCCP accepts unopened OTC (over-the-counter) medications of all kinds. They also accept ALL CURRENT prescription medications (except controlled substances) that are unopened and still sealed. If the medication was dispensed in a blister pack, unused pills that are still in the blister pack are also accepted. Their licensed pharmacists will take your leftovers and add them to others to make a supply for our less-fortunate neighbors in Chatham County. Instead of turning these (sometimes very expensive) items into a pharmacy or the police for destruction, please take them to the CCCP. For office hours and location, go to www.chathamcares.com/1.html or call 919-663-0177.
