Every year, The Downtown Dispensary will commit a percentage of its proceeds to patient programs as well as other non-profit and charitable organizations that educate patients about their rights.  The dispensary will look for opportunities to work with the city on improving patient access and create a volunteer program that will help qualified patients.  The directors of the dispensary have distinct backgrounds including commercial crop production, healthcare, fitness, and health information systems.
