While 2022 has been a year for the books in many ways, the one thing that sticks out most to me is the unprecedented formula shortage that occurred over the summer. The core of our mission at Infant Crisis Services is the ability to provide formula, food, and diapers to needy Oklahoma babies and toddlers—through your support we did just that during one of our toughest seasons with unwavering dedication.
We saw parents from all walks of life come through our doors asking for help to find the formula their babies so desperately needed. I am proud to say that even with the nearly 40% increase of clients over the summer, we never had to turn anyone away. In a time that was scary for so many, Infant Crisis Services remained a beacon of hope for families in need. We know one missed meal can have detrimental impacts on a child’s development and families across Oklahoma lived with that fear this summer. Like our name says, we will always be here for families in their times of crisis, and we know that looks different for everyone. Now, we need your help. With the significant increase in clients, comes an increase in the cost of product. Will you donate to ensure that we can continue giving a week’s worth of formula, food, and diapers to each baby or toddler when they enter our doors?
Thank you for being an integral part of the ICS family in this year of challenges. We could not do what we do without your continued commitment to changing lives.
Always for the babies,
