Mothers’ Milk Bank Northeast puts babies at the center of everything we do. We exist because babies need us to exist, babies who are born premature, medically fragile, and who risk further medical complications without breastmilk. Thank you for all the support you have already given us.
Your gift makes an enormous difference.
- A gift of $100 allows us to provide enough milk for 60 feedings for premature newborns.
- A gift of $500 subsidizes milk for a baby whose family needs financial support
- A gift of $1,000 helps us grow our operation and serve more families
We need your help so more babies can grow and thrive.
You can help a family like Kate and David and their beautiful baby Sarah. Born with a rare congenital heart defect, Sarah was transferred from Florida to Boston Children’s Hospital for the best treatment. Kate tried to pump for baby Sarah, but her milk supply wasn’t enough. Sarah started receiving our donor milk at Boston Children’s upon the recommendation of her doctor.
Afraid to leave baby Sarah’s side, Kate and David spent the first weeks of Sarah’s life in Boston many miles away from home. The family had not anticipated the added costs of relocating with a medically fragile baby. David reached out to Mothers’ Milk Bank Northeast for support through our G.I.F.T program (Growing Infants for Tomorrow). Sarah, who was at a heightened risk for infection, needed excellent nutrition to become strong enough for complex open-heart surgery. We were glad to be able to provide them with a critical medical resource for Sarah. David expressed the family’s gratitude with a heartfelt note:
“Thank you so very much for everything you have done for us and for Sarah. Words cannot express how truly grateful we are to you for everything. I hope you know how much you have impacted our lives with your kindness and with all the help you have given to us. I am so happy to know that there are people like you in this world.”
Please help us help families like Kate and David’s. Help us grow to meet the growing demand as parents and doctors increasingly recognize the importance of donor milk in infant nutrition and health. We can do this – with your help. Please help us by clicking here to make a gift right now, before 2022 slips away.

P.S. We need to raise $100,000 by year end. Together we can reach this goal and care for babies in need.
