November news & updates
The New York Milk Bank is celebrating our 5 Year Anniversary!
We're so proud of how far we've come since opening our doors in September 2016-collecting and dispensing over 1,000,000 ounces of breast milk to date.
We couldn't have done it without our incredible milk donors,
financial supporters, and devoted staff.
Give us a big HIGH FIVE by donating $5 to $500...or more!
Your generosity keeps our mission of providing life-sustaining breast milk to babies in need going strong. Let's join hands!

Here's Donna Kimmick, IBCLC owner of Lakeshore Lactation and President of the Long Island Lactation Consultant Association (LILCA), and Roseanne Motti, our Director of Community Relations, after delivering a freezer.
We are so appreciative of the support we receive from our depots. A milk depot is a convenient collection site for our approved donors to drop off their milk. Milk depots are responsible for storing and shipping a donor's milk to us.
If you are interested in hosting one email, Roseanne!

The Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program makes it easy for shoppers to support their community and environment by buying durable, reusable shopping bags. A portion of each Community Bag purchase goes to a local non-profit in need. Donations from Community Bag sales support civic, education, health & wellness, and military/veterans organizations.
For the month of December 2021, New York Statewide Breastfeeding Coalition will receive a $1 donation from each purchase of the $2.50 reusable Community Bag at the Hannaford store located at 180 Delaware Avenue, Delmar NY.
