On August 22nd, MMBNE opened our first donor milk depot in New Hampshire at Nini Bambini. The Aria Covey Foundation surprised us with a donation of $2,000, every penny of which will help families in need receive donor milk for their fragile babies.
In addition, the Foundation purchased the depot’s freezer, a big one that will be well used, judging from the 450 ounces that 5 moms donated on site the day of our opening! It is especially meaningful knowing that Amy Covey herself continued pumping and donating her milk to our milk bank after the loss of her daughter, Aria, for whom the foundation is named.
Here are some photos of the event:
Here’s what the press had to say about it:

We are extremely grateful to the Aria Covey Foundation, Nini Bambini, and all of our amazing donor moms who are helping us save babies’ lives every day.
