Guiding Star Mid-Missouri is a milk depot!

What is a milk depot?
As a milk depot, we are able to accept breastmilk from donors. Donors must complete an intake and blood draw screening to begin the process. Milk collected at our location is sent directly to St. Luke’s in Kansas City and used for NICU patients. 

If you are interested in becoming a donor, please contact us for more information.
