PORTSMOUTH, Va. - A Portsmouth shelter is currently in need of baby formula donations.

The HER shelter, which houses survivors of domestic violence, says they are in need of baby formula due to a massive formula recall.

The shelter is requesting the Similac brand because it is what the majority of their clients use with their children.

The specific kinds in need are listed below, along with the priority level of need:

  • Similac Advance Infant Formula (blue can) - most often used - highest priority
  • Similac Sensitive (orange can) - medium priority
  • Similac Alimentum (purple can) - medium priority
  • Similac Total Comfort (pink can) - medium priority
  • Similac Isomil (red can) - medium priority
  • Similac Neosure (light pink can) - light priority
  • Similac for Supplementation (green can) - light priority
