Mother's Milk Bank 1

Lutherans often quietly live their faith day by day so it was fun to catch one of our own TLLC members on the national news this week! Kim Updegrove, Executive Director of the Mother’s Milk Bank at Austin, is sharing a little bit of good news in the midst of difficult circumstances for families enduring the formula shortage across our state and country.

Kim shared, “As some of you may already know or experience yourselves, families with formula-fed infants are in crisis due to the formula recalls and supply interruptions experienced by the industry throughout the US. It is understandably a frightening and maddening time. TLLC has long supported the charitable programs of Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin through its endowment.”

MMBA provides pasteurized donor milk to babies with a medical need. But MMBA has also always risen to help in a time of crisis. Today’s crisis is no different. Thanks to financial and milk donations, MMBA is able to provide a small volume of donor milk to each family experiencing difficulty finding formula, and they help families find the formula resources they need to carry them long-term. If you are a family in need, reach out to 512-494-0800. If you are a family who wants to help bring some good news to others, visit milkbank.org.
