Mothers' Milk Bank Donation and Outreach Center

Our Lakewood WIC Clinic is the first WIC site in Colorado to become a Donation and Outreach Center for the Arvada-based Mothers' Milk Bank. If you are breastfeeding and have an abundance of human milk, please consider becoming a donor. Call the Mothers' Milk Bank at 303-369-1888 or visit their website to find out how! We support human milk donors by drawing blood, storing milk and preparing shipments to Mothers' Milk Bank.
