Helping Hands Milk Bank

Helping Hands Milk Bank is looking for breast milk donors.
Can you help?

Why should you donate?

If you have too much breast milk, it can be processed into specialty formulations for the nutritional needs of premature and critically ill infants in neonatal intensive care units. Many moms donate their excess breast milk to help babies in need because they have had a preterm baby in the past or know someone who has had that experience. Breast milk donors report a sense of satisfaction knowing they are providing their milk to help premature or sick infants.
Basically you can help save babies lives and every once donated helps the Susan G. Komen for the Cure in support of breast cancer research.

Learn more at the Helping Hands Milk Bank website.
Read more about it at Business Wire News.
