FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — Mothers with extra milk have the opportunity to help others in need Monday.

Lutheran Health Network is teaming up with The MilkBank for the donor drive from 3-7 pm on November 26. Mothers who have extra milk are being invited to drop off their supply, fill out a medical history form and have their blood drawn for testing.

The health network says the milk is needed to help provide milk for ill or premature infants throughout the United States.

“We continue to be inspired by mothers willing to donate their breast milk for NICU babies,” said Holly Romary, RN, internationally board-certified lactation consultant, Lutheran Children’s Hospital. “It’s a generous gift and so important to helping improve outcomes. This drive is our chance to increase Indiana’s supply and spread the word.”

Those interested in donating milk should be healthy women who delivered an infant within the past two years. Candidates must be willing to complete a medical history form and blood test. Donors are not paid for their milk. Mothers are encouraged to call Lutheran’s lactation team at (260) 435-7330, or visit TheMilkBank.org/donate-milk, for more information.
