We have started an in office Community Breastmilk Depot. WE ARE NOT A BREASTMILK BANK.
We are supporting and helping to facilitate mother to mother milk sharing. We take donations from mothers in the community, have them fill out a simple questionnaire with contact information for the family to contact them with any other questions they have,
and we store the milk in our freezer awaiting pickup. We also help facilitate matching families. We are sensitive to allergy issues and the age of the baby donating and receiving the milk. We can also be a temporary storage for long distance pick ups. We have a working relationship with Eat on Feets VT, and are in the process of contacting the leaders of the Eats on Feets MA and NY chapters
to help those families too.
Twice a year we have a Open House & Clothing Swap. At this event, if families want to donate the left over clothes to us, we wash them and keep them for families in need. Many times these clothes are swapped out by families needing bigger sizes. Occasionally,
we have a family that is in crisis and we donate a large amount of clothing all at once. Our Community Closet is open to swaps and donations year round. Check out the bins in the Community Cottage and ask about other sizes we may have stored.
Community Care Fund
Our Community Care Fund is set up to help families in need afford services they may not be able to afford on their own. In the past we have helped individuals and families in many ways.
- A mom with PTSD from her traumatic last birth, to have a much needed homebirth.
- A veteran have bodywork and life coaching to help with injuries, both emotional and physical.
- A baby & momma have lactation and CFT to keep her from weaning her baby after a missed lip and tongue tie.
- A family who lost their job and ran out of groceries.
We make donating really simple.
- Give us your donation when we see you for a visit at the office.
- Send money to our PayPal account, email@example.com
- Send a Check or Money Order to our office with a note letting us know its a Community Care Fund donation.
Please remember ANY amount is helpful! We had a little girl give us $1 in quarters, that she earned cleaning her room. We used that money to help buy groceries for the family in crisis. EVERY dollar counts! No amount is to little! Thank you to all who have donated and all those that will donate in the future.
