There’s some good news this week for Oklahoma babies in need.

The Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program has awarded $50,000 to Infant Crisis Services. That’s enough to feed and diaper 1,550 babies and toddlers.

“We are very grateful for the generous gift from the Walmart Foundation’s State Giving Program to help us provide basic needs to the most vulnerable citizens in our community,” said Miki Farris, executive director Infant Crisis Services, in a statement. “We are thankful that the Walmart Foundation is concerned for the tiniest of the poor and hungry in our community.”

Infant Crisis Servcies is an Oklahoma City-based nonprofit that provids, food, formula and diapers to babies in need. The Walmart Foundation State Giving Program supports groups that help people live better.
