S.V. asks from Anaheim, CA on July 06, 2008
Hello! Does anyone know of a place in Anaheim or surrounding area that I can donate some formula to?? I have samples that were given to me, and I have been breastfeeding for almost a year, and won't be needing them. Or if anyone out there needs it, I'll be happy to meet up to give it to you. Its all Similac, different types.

Florence Crittenton Home is in Fullerton and is an orphanage that has cares for and houses all ages. Even teen mom's with new babies. Our office regularly donates items to them and I'm sure they would be very appreciative.

Through Yahoo there is a group "FreeCycle" you sign up for free in your area to give and receive things for Free! I gave away some dishes, put them on my porch and a college student picked them up and was so happy....

Try locating a woman's shelter in your area....or check with your local church to see if someone in their parish is in need.

I don't know of a place in Anaheim, but I do know of a place in Placentia. I am not certain if they can accept formula, but its worth a shot. El Dorado HS has a teen-mother's program. In a nutshell, there is an onsite childcare that cares for the children while the (teen)parents finish high school. The students are required to spend their lunch hour with the kids so that the child-caregivers can have a lunch hour as well. I have donated my daughter's clothing to the school. The teen mothers that need clothing for their child can take it home. I believe in helping those teenage mothers who are trying to finish high school and not become another statistic. I think it is a great program, but am sure it is costly since the students do not pay for childcare while they are attending school.
