Talk to Pat Stewart at Kilgores in Columbia, off Forum and Chapel Hill. She's an LC and is usually in touch with people who are looking to donate a stash.

I'd help but my own supply is minimal at htis point...

Oh, there's some contact info on their site but I can't seem to get to it atm:

It's under "Services", IIRC.

Milkshare (a yahoo group) is a great resource. I've donated to several families whom I met through it.

Pat set us up with a Lactina pump but she was unable to come up with anyone who had milk.

I have broadcasted around the church to the mommas that we are looking for milk. Stalk is more like it. I asked nearly every mom who came in the nursery today if they were breastfeeding. I got several promising leads.

I have also been on milk share this last week and have been able to get around 400 ounces promised our way.

Progress.
