During the month of July, Trails to Ales Brewery is donating 3% from sales of its Sandy Creek Shandy brew to benefit the Northwest Hospital Foundation Medication Hardship Fund. Ales Brewery is located at 1270 Liberty Street in Franklin, Pennsylvania.
Many residents without full health insurance coverage often must decide between putting food on the table or going without medication.
The Medication Hardship Fund ensures patients can obtain their medications and reduces the chance of costly hospital readmissions.
