Northwest Mothers Milk Bank Donor Event

Mel MacManiman

I was honored to photograph a Donor Appreciation event for Northwest Mothers Milk Bank. Their work is dear to heart and they make such a difference to little babies in need. It was a joy to work with them and all of the great donor families! 

Local Milk is Local Love

"We believe milk donors are local heroes; saving babies drop by drop! With one of the highest breastfeeding rates in the nation, NW moms have milk!

This vital, local resource makes a significant difference in the health outcomes of premature and ill infants. Milk donors are volunteers; lovingly offering the unique gift of breastmilk to other babies in their own communities."
