Anita Hollerer-Squire has lived in Alameda for three years. She is originally from Austria, and has spent many years travelling around the world. Her husband is part of Artemis Racing, the Swedish team that took part in the 34th America’s Cup races in 2013. Artemis was based at Alameda Point during the races and many of the team’s families took up residence here.
“Since we arrived, the people in Alameda have been so welcoming and friendly and have included us into their community,” she said. Hollerer-Squire would like to repay this kindness and give something back.
The Coast2Coast Rx Card program has saved Alameda County residents more than $7.5 million dollars since its start. Both the Board of Supervisors and the California State Association of Counties endorse the program.
The complimentary discount prescription card program provides residents and their families with a number of benefits that produce immediate discounts on prescriptions as well as dental, vision, veterinary and hearing services.
