The Indiana State Fair is quickly approaching and we need your help!
The Milk Bank has partnered with the Indiana Breastfeeding Coalition, Metro Indy Lactation Coalition and Indiana Healthy Weight Initiative to provide breastfeeding mothers with a comfortable place to tend to their little ones.
This year, we are proud to announce that we will have an RV located on the northeast corner of the Family Fun Park. Families can also feel free to use the Red Cross station located next to Hook’s Pharmacy.
“Breastfeeding advocates from across the state were excited and enthused that last year, the State Fair took on lactation stations for Hoosier mothers as an integral part of the infrastructure of the state fair. In an effort to improve this important accommodation, The Milk Bank with support from the Indiana Breastfeeding Coalition, Metro Indy Lactation Coalition, have secured an RV and location for an air conditioned, comfortable place for breastfeeding and pumping mothers,” said Sarah Long, Director of Clinical Operations at The Milk Bank.
We are thankful to Mount Comfort RV for their generous RV donation and support of the lactation stations.
While we are looking forwarding to serving all the mothers and families, it takes a lot of help to make sure things run smoothly. We are seeking volunteers to staff the lactation stations throughout the duration of the fair, which will be Aug. 4 through the 20th.
