WakeMed Milk Bank Donor In the News
We are so grateful for the many milk bank donors who give their time and effort by donating breast milk. One donor in particular, Kelli Russell, of Washington, N.C., was recently featured in the national news (Yahoo! Parenting and Associated Press) for her generous donation of 38 gallons of breast milk to the WakeMed Milk Bank. Russell has also been the subject of a past WakeMed Voices blog and local news stories found here and here. Russell and all of our other donors share a selfless gift with babies and families who need the incredibly valuable nutrition found in breast milk. If you find yourself with an oversupply of breast milk, please do not throw it away. Consider donating it to the WakeMed Mother’s Milk Bank to help other babies grow and thrive. Contact us today!
