Some people are still recovering after Hurricane Michael swept through southwest Georgia a little under a month ago.

In response, the United Way of Southwest Georgia is providing replacement prescription medication to people in need.

United Way, Albany Area Primary Health Care and U-Save-It Pharmacy will all be teaming together to provide the medication completely free of charge.

United Way Interim CEO Michelle Thomas says it's all about helping people with recovery efforts.

"Some people have power outages for over a week and people that needed medication to be refrigerated lost all of that medication, insulin, antibiotics, different things like that," said Thomas.

If you're in need of assistance, you can contact Albany Area Primary Health Care at 229-888-6559.

Citizens can also visit the South Albany Medical Center, East Albany Medical Center or Hotz Scoggins Family Medical Center.

Medications will be available on a first come, first serve basis until November 30, or as long as funding is available.
