Every year more than 72,000 babies in the U.S. are born too soon, too small, or too sick and require donor human milk in order to survive. As we launch our annual Drops of Hope campaign, we invite you to support the Mothers' Milk Bank at Austin and our mission to save babies' lives.
This year's goal is $35,000 which ensures MMBA will be able to serve thousands of babies in need--not only here in Austin, but across Texas and 22 other states.
We are honored to partner with our community for this end of year endeavor, and to celebrate our shared commitment to improving the survival and health outcomes of medically-fragile babies everywhere.

It helps provide 6,000+ Therapeutic Feedings for Very Low Birthweight (VLBW) infants who are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand
It also assists with the creation of 5+ New Community-Based Milk Depots to better serve our volunteer milk donors where they live and work
It supports the screening and approval of 50+ New Volunteer Milk Donors which results in numerous meals for thousands of babies in need
It helps covers 120+ Microbiological Tests which ensure the safety of the milk MMBA processes and dispenses to over 130 Neonatal Intensive Care Units across the country
And, it helps deliver 600+ Meals for the medically-fragile infants who have been released from the hospital but still remain dependent on mothers’ milk to survive.
