The New York Milk Bank (NYMB) is seeking volunteers high school aged and older to help at the Milk Bank. NYMB is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.; volunteers can assist for a number of hours or a whole day once a week or more.

Milk Bank Volunteers help staff with an assortment of tasks so that precious donor milk gets to infants who need it. These tasks may include answering phones, assembling boxes and packets, packing boxes for shipping, labeling bottles, and filing.

Volunteering at New York Milk Bank is a great way to help a Westchester-based nonprofit. For students who need hours for college, this is a great opportunity for community service and career exploration.

Mission Statement

The New York Milk Bank is dedicated to saving the lives of premature infants by providing them with safely pasteurized human donor breast milk. When mother’s own milk is not available, pasteurized human donor milk is the next best choice.

Description

We are a small non-profit milk bank located in Westchester County, NY. We are a staff of nine full-time and two part-time employees. We screen donors, collect breast milk, pasteurize breast milk, and dispense and ship pasteurized human donor milk to hospitals and the community. We are regulated by The New York State Department of Health and accredited by The Human Milk Bank Association of North America. We are committed to reducing health disparities and increasing awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding and donor milk. We are seeking volunteers to knit, crochet, and/or sew baby blankets and/or hats so we can distribute them to families in need.
