Medicine Store is a locally owned pharmacy. Our owner, Jerry Popek, and his staff have been helping the Springfield area with their pharmacy needs for over 27 years. Our pharmacists and staff are proud to call the Missouri Ozarks ‘home’. That’s why we take pride in supporting and sponsoring local charities, organizations and sports’ teams. We believe that these organizations are making a difference in the lives of the people of Southwest Missouri. Below, we are spotlighting two of those organizations.
Lost and Found
Lost & Found’s mission is to provide grief support services in a safe and supportive environment for children, young adults, and families grieving the death of a loved one. The center is a local nonprofit organization founded in 2000. Lost & Found offers therapeutic support groups supervised by professional counselors, who are supported by trained volunteers. The center operates under the principles that grief is a natural reaction to death for children as well as adults; that within each individual is the natural capacity to heal oneself; the duration and intensity of grief are unique for each individual; and that caring and acceptance assist in the healing process. You can learn more about Lost and Found at their website, www.lostandfoundozarks.com.
