1 Million Ounce



Join the Milk Bank Challenge

Our friends at ConceiveAbilities are supporting milk banks across the country with the #MilkBankChallenge. Anyone becoming a milk donor can receive a $250 gift card in appreciation for their efforts. The goal? 1,000,000 ounces of donated breast milk. ConceiveAbilities wanted to lend a hand to the milk banks across the country working tirelessly for the babies and the families that are in such great need for this milk. The infant formula shortage, which started in 2022, is unfortunately not over and your support is still needed.
