ROCKFORD -- Twenty minutes into UW Health’s SwedishAmerican Hospital and State Representative Maurice West, D-Rockford's Baby Formula giveaway, a line of cars had formed around the block leading into the Discovery Center parking lot (711 Main Street, Rockford).
“As a father to a young daughter, I understand the fear of not being able to provide my child with everything she needs,” West said.
“Right now, we have families that are suffering because they can’t find formula and give their babies the nutrition they need to be healthy and strong. Through this partnership, I hope to help our families and make sure our youngest community members don’t go to bed hungry.”
Formulas available are Enfamil, EnfamilAR, GentleEase, and Nutrmigen.
The giveaway event starts at 10 am and will conclude at 2pm or when supplies run out.
Families with limited baby formula resources are encouraged to stop by.
