“The cost of meds are extremely expensive and they were able to

give me a voucher for meds I can’t be without.”

Our Rx Fund helps families and individuals with critical healthcare needs that cannot be met otherwise.

REX the Piggy Bank

Every October you will find REX the Piggy Bank in stores, offices, and restaurants in Carroll County collecting donations. REX has been around for years, collecting funds used to support prescription assistance for local residents who otherwise would go without medications.

The Rx Fund can help:

  • Fill emergency prescription needs

  • Provide temporary lodging during recovery from a medical procedure

  • Pay for medical supplies not covered under insurance

  • Assist with the cost of over-the-counter medications

  • Pay for prescription glasses

  • Provide prescription assistance for those above the income threshold

Any business, church, organization, youth group, school, individual or household can help “feed” REX to support the Rx Fund.


  • Take REX “home” for the month of October and fill him with coins, checks, and bills.

  • Return REX to The Shepherd’s Staff at the end of the month.

If you would like to have a REX the Piggy Bank at your location, please contact us at info@shepstaff.org.
