Two military mothers are giving back strength to families and communities during this shortage of baby formula in Utah. They are donating milk to needy families to help them cope with feeding their babies in these tough times.
Baby formula is a source of nutrition for millions of babies but it is disappearing from shelves amid a nationwide shortage that is said to last for months.
God commands us to love our neighbors and one of the ways to do so is by helping others in need. Whether it is through our money, time, or ourselves, helping others is a mark of a mature Christian.
The military women from Alabama and North Carolina understand the pain of what other mothers are going through because they too have children aged 6 and 10 months.
In an amazing act of kindness, they took a break from training and delivered 800 ounces of milk to a non-profit called Mountain West Mother’s Milk Bank, in South Salt Lake, Utah. Praise the Lord!
The non-profit will donate all the mill collected to families who are not able to get the baby formula needed for their babies.
The MWMMB is an advocate for breast milk and is doing its best for little children’s health and nutrition as they screen, process, and give the donated milk to babies who are needing it.
It has set up donation sites in Utah and southern Idaho where people who want to donate their milk can deposit it there. It is then sent to Salt Lake City to be processed and distributed.
A mother can be really protective of her baby and want to provide for it the best way she can, but here we see these two selfless mothers pouring out themselves for the good of those children whom they do not know.
Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
