Organizations host milk donor drive

The Milk Bank and Columbus Regional Health are co-hosting one of central Indiana’s first breast milk donation drives.

The event will be from 2 to 5:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Columbus Regional Hospital, Cafeteria Dining Room D, 2400 E. 17th St.

Women who are currently or have recently finished lactating are encouraged to donate their stored, surplus breast milk to care for ill or fragile infants across the region.

Donors will be asked to fill out a medical history form and complete a quick blood draw to determine the best use of their donated milk. Ideal donors are nonsmoking women in good health who take limited or no medications, or herbal supplements.
