In Oklahoma, one in four children live in poverty and are at great risk of experiencing food insecurity. When you donate formula, diapers and other baby essentials to Infant Crisis Services, we give them to babies and toddlers who need our help. The baby items and funds collected help Infant Crisis Services provide emergency assistance to children who would otherwise go without the basic necessities.
How To Begin
It’s easy to get started. Register your drive and a staff member will follow up within 3 business days to confirm your information. During the busy holiday season, a response may take up to 5 business days. Join us by sponsoring a baby item and fund drive at your workplace, school, place of worship, neighborhood, or civic organization. They are welcome all year round! For more information or to schedule your baby item and fund drive with Infant Crisis Services, please contact Development Coordinator, Katie Kastl, at 405-778-7611.
Strengthen Their Start (July – September)
It’s Back-to-School Time! As you are purchasing items from your child’s school supplies list, please consider adding a few extra items to help the babies and toddlers served by Infant Crisis Services.
Bedlam for Babies (October – November)
Help us tackle childhood hunger with a Bedlam for Babies drive. OU and OSU fans can go head-to-head in your workplace collecting the basic necessities for babies and toddlers at risk of going hungry. The team with the most collected items will earn the ultimate prize of bragging rights.
