Bluecross offers donation to charitable organization
CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- A generous donation will give Chattanooga's underinsured more access to prescription medications.
On Wednesday, Bluecross BlueShield gave $75,000 to the *Dispensary of Hope," an organization that provides pharmaceuticals to patients who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford them.
Organizers say this donation will go a long way in providing affordable medications to the area's uninsured and underinsured.

Memorial Healthcare System will use some of these funds to create the first dispensing site. Additional sites will be announced at a later date.
