ARVADA, Colo. (KDVR) — An Arvada single mother is helping families, who are desperate for baby formula, find it.
Julia Walker said her own struggle to find baby formula has motivated her to find the food across the country and get it to locals who can’t find it.
Walker is the founder of “Hope, Connection & Community,” a non-profit organization she runs out of her apartment.
“It’s a ‘nationwide village,’ is what I call it,” she said. She said her list of parents already exceeds 60.
A handful of other volunteers help Walker find the formula, document it and then get it to parents and caregivers in the area.
“We’re all trying to do the same thing: get babies fed,” Walker said.
