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 to survive. As we launch our annual Drops of Hope campaign we invite you to join us in our efforts to save the lives of medically-fragile babies by making your end-of-the-year donation in support of Mothers' Milk Bank Austin.
When we opened our doors twenty years ago we made a promise to NEVER turn away a baby with a medical need. Since then we've provided more than six million ounces of prescribed, pasteurized donor human milk to tens of thousands of fragile infants throughout Texas and 22 other states.
We believe every child deserves an opportunity to survive; and it’s why MMBA is one of the only milk banks in the country to have a Charitable Care Program. Our Program is 100% philanthropically funded, and relies solely on the generous support of individuals, businesses, and foundations. Before the end of the year MMBA will provide over $350,000 of charitable assistance to tiny, vulnerable babies who remain dependent on donor human milk for survival.
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.
Every donation received during Drops of Hope has an immediate impact on the babies and families we serve. Help us reach our goal by making an easy and secure online donation today by clicking the button below.
