Every state is different, so you'll need to check your pharmacy
regulations, or contact your Board of Pharmacy.   The pharmaceutical
packaging has to be the original sealed container or in sealed unit dose
packaging to be eligible.  Here is our language:

Does anyone have a good resource for information on the donation of
unused medicines or information that basically prohibits this?  I have a
pharmacist who supplies meds to long term care facilities in blister
packs and is interested in donating unused portions.  Also, having
recently conducted a take-back program, we collected numerous items from
the public that were still factory-sealed.  Thank you.
