The nation’s pro-life pregnancy resource centers are stepping up to help parents obtain baby formula in the face of the current shortage plaguing the nation. One center in Michigan even reports that it has an “overflow” of baby formula available to those in need.

The nation’s nearly three thousand pro-life pregnancy centers provide women and parents in need with health care, education and material assistance – including baby formula – Catholic News Agency’s (CNA) Katie Yoder reports.

Helping Hands Pregnancy Resource Center, located in Hillsdale, Michigan, told CNA it has extra baby formula ready and waiting for parents in need.

“I have never seen this much formula. We have an overflow!” Lois Stoll, a volunteer who manages the formula supply at the center, says. “It really is the result of an unexpected set of circumstances.”

“God has been building our supply of formula for many months, and we didn’t know why we had so much. Now we do!” Bryce Asberg, the center’s executive director, says.

Other pro-life pregnancy resource centers across the U.S., such as those in Connecticut, North Carolina, Virginia and Washington, D.C. report to the Catholic News Agency that they are providing baby formula and, when they run out, are helping parents find additional sources.
