Hi girls, i havent mad too many posts in here. Im. New. I have a question. What do u suggest i do.
I have tons of formula coipons, one for $15 off and i know with the shut down someone cld use them . However i dont know anyone who is going to ff. I was thinking about dropping them off at a foid bank so they can give them out there to pple who need them. Any other suggestions?

That's a good idea. I am a part of a couple of local FB groups of mommies selling to other mommies and we pass coupons back and forth as we get them to mommies who need them. Maybe look into that?

Thanks! Thats a great idea. I really feel for these mothers who are in need of formula and dont have any. Yes there are plenty of bashers in other groups , but when babies r in meed they are in need. They have no fault

I 100% agree! When I was in the hospital having Seb, the nurse told me that they have to throw away EVERYTHING in the room after a patient is discharged, even the unopened formula! I EBF but I grabbed every last one of those formula bottles (and she gave me extra) and I brought them to the soup kitchen. There is no need to throw all that away!

 That's a good idea, I've taken formula to the women's shelter before.

Do you have a local "pay it forward" or "for sale" (even though you want to give it away) group on FB? You could offer it there if you do. The food bank is a great idea or even the women's shelter as the pp commented. Maybe a church also?

I've been mailing mine out to the fabulous ladies in my due date group who use formula.

I donated a bunch of formula that I never used to WIC.
