Breast pump brand Medela has announced an in-kind donation to benefit breastfeeding families in recognition of 40 years supporting families across the USA. The donation includes Medela double electric breast pumps and nursing tanks and bras that will be used to support 850 new and expectant mothers in need to be distributed by Good+Foundation, a non-profit organization and long-time Medela partner.
Good+Foundation is a leading national nonprofit that works to dismantle multi-generational poverty by pairing tangible goods with innovative services for low-income fathers, mothers and caregivers, creating an upward trajectory for the whole family.
This donation reflects Medela’s commitment to new parents, especially mothers in their transition back to work after baby. “Medela has proudly supported breastfeeding families across the USA for 40 years,” said Kimberly Aasen, senior director of global communications and corporate social responsibility for Medela. “Medela Cares reflects our commitment to ensuring that new moms and babies have access to the quality products and services needed to support their breast milk feeding journey, and we’re thrilled to advance the important work Good+Foundation is doing for families across America by providing the breast pumps and nursing apparel that new moms need.”
“A breast pump can be a transformative tool for new mothers,” said Katherine Snider, Chief Executive Officer at Good+Foundation. “Through the generous support of our partners at Medela, we are able to provide high-quality breast pumps to Good+ moms and families across the country. Thank you, Medela, for helping us meet this ongoing critical need.”
Medela has donated more than $1.95 million in in-kind product donations to Good+Foundation since 2008. Medela is focused on expanding the support available to new parents, introducing new digital resources and breastfeeding products later this year.
