United Way Helps Tarrant Residents Save More Than $2 Million on Prescription Medicines

United Way has helped Tarrant County residents save more than $2 million on their prescription medications, thanks to its partnership with the FamilyWize organization and promotion of the free FamilyWize prescription savings card. The card can reduce the cost of prescriptions for anyone who uses it.
