We need your help to stock up on formula. When you are out running errands – whether at the grocery store, a big box store, or the pharmacy – please check the formula aisle for the following formulas, and grab a can for us if they have it in stock:
- Similac Sensitive*
- Similac Alimentum
- Similac NeoSure
- Enfamil NeuroPro Sensitive
- Enfamil Gentlease
*Pro-Advance is good too
Our donation hours are Monday through Thursday from 10:00am to 3:00pm. For hours and directions, visit littlehandsva.org/contact.
Please only get one or two cans for us from a store. Parents are driving all over town looking for formula and we don’t want to hurt another family’s ability to get formula for their child.
This drive is prompted by an uptick in requests from the organization’s over 60 partners whose families are having trouble accessing formula. Specifically, VCU Medical Center’s Emergency Department has asked Little Hands to help the hospital stock formula for low-income families unable to find formula on shelves and coming into the emergency room in need.
VCU Medical Center will help provide these families with at least 24 hours of formula. In late March, Little Hands provided a bulk stock of formula to the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU. In restocking our shelves, we will also be able to continue to provide formula to over 60 partners whose families are having trouble accessing formula.
