NORFOLK, Va. - There is a way to Share the gift of health with medically fragile babies this holiday season.

The Children’s Hospital of the King's Daughter Milk Bank is in desperate need of milk donations.

They need donations from healthy, lactating mothers with a milk supply above and beyond their baby's needs.

CHKD said just one ounce of human milk can protect, health, and nourish up to four premature infants in the NICU.

There is no cost to become a donor. Visit CHKD by clicking here or call 757-668-6455 that's "MILK" to learn more.

The Milk Bank hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and weekend collections are available but dates and times vary. Contact the Milk Bank at (757) 668-6455 for details.
