We are kicking off 2023 with an ambitious community outreach project: eliminating medical debt in northern New England! Prime will donate 20% of all capsule sales in January and February to support this worthy cause.
RIP Medical Debt is a non-profit organization that uses donations to purchase bundled medical debt portfolios on the secondary debt market, and then forgives that debt at pennies on the dollar. Prime ATC’s campaign with RIP Medical Debt will benefit individuals and families with outstanding debts in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
On average, $1 is leveraged to abolish $100 in debts, and every donation through this campaign will be spent directly on abolishing medical debt in northern New England. When debt relief recipients open the yellow envelope from RIP Medical Debt, they are told that their debt has been bought by a third party and erased with no strings attached. They owe nothing on the debt and face no tax penalty.
Every dollar we contribute will be a $100 investment in northern New England. On average, $8.87 will wipe out the debt associated with a single billing account. Money will stay in the community instead of being taken by debt collectors.Our goal is to raise $10,000, which will eliminate approximately $1 million in debts.
If you’d like to place an order for capsules, visit our menu. You can also support the campaign with a direct donation here.
For our November Community Outreach project, we are supporting The Friendly Kitchen in Concord. This worthy organization has been feeding the hungry for more than 40 years. We are encouraging patients and caregivers to donate non-perishable food items, which will be collected at both dispensaries between Nov. 1 and Nov. 23.
To incentivize donations, we will enter you into a raffle for every 5 non-perishable food items donated. Winners will receive store credit: $250 for 1st prize, $150 for 2nd prize, and $100 for 3rd prize. Each dispensary will hold its own raffle. There is no limit on the number of raffle entries, so please feel free to donate as many times as you wish!
If you’re not sure what items are best to donate, here’s a list of suggestions supplied by The Friendly Kitchen:
Thanks again to all who supported Prime’s team of walkers in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, September 24! We collected $829 in donations at the dispensaries, and patients who walked with us collected an additional $300. Thanks to patients’ and caregivers’ generosity, we were able to contribute $1,129 to the Alzheimer’s Association!
The Alzheimer’s Association works to end Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia by funding research, care, and support. The event was very successful, and we could not be happier to support this worthy cause.
As an added bonus, we enjoyed seeing our name appear on the sign at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium along with other walk teams. Here’s a photo of Gov. Chris Sununu speaking at the event with our name appearing prominently on the big screen behind him!
As always, we are immensely grateful to all patients and caregivers who have supported our Community Outreach program. Thank you for helping us make a positive impact!
Tickets for the talent show are $50. For those who can afford it, this is a great opportunity to enjoy some local talent and support a very worthy cause. Tickets are available for purchase here.
CCEH’s mission is “to eliminate chronic homelessness; support and quickly re-house people who have recently become homeless; and build a system that effectively responds to the diverse needs of people experiencing homelessness.”

Prime will be fielding a team of walkers for the event. If you’d like to join us for the walk or make a donation on behalf of our team, we would greatly appreciate it!

Azimuth Check Foundation is an all-volunteer organization that “helps heroes find their way by providing injured warriors challenging year-round athletic activities that create wellness in an atmosphere of camaraderie.” Based in New Hampshire, they sponsor and support athletic events throughout northern New England to benefit veterans, first responders, and medical personnel with disabilities.
According to the organization’s website, financial contributions “will help us in many key ways, such as: securing indoor and outdoor event locations, providing amenities to event participants, renting or purchasing sporting equipment and adaptive sporting equipment, and reaching out to sponsors, participants, and partners.”
We are eager to support Azimuth Check Foundation for our August Community Outreach project. For each 4mL tincture sold in August, we will donate $1, and for each 12mL tincture sold, we will donate $3.
