OKLAHOMA CITY -

Empty racks at the Infant Crisis Services now have the organization asking the community for help. Mothers are down to taking just four items in some of the sections rather than the allotted six.

Volunteers this morning folded what's left of the dwindling clothing donations.

Infant Crisis Services is run solely on the generosity of the community through donations. But now, low stock on the racks means there are less items going home with families in need.

“We're not the long term program we're the emergency, when you are in a pinch place where you go,” Miki Farris, Infant Crisis Services Co-founder and Executive Director.

Co-founder Miki Farris and her Sunday School group started this as project in the mid-80's. The project has now turned into an organization helping to relieve some of the stress put on these parents.

“We help them five times over their lifetime and we provide the basic necessities of formula, baby food, toddler food, diapers, and then the extras are the clothing, the toys, and the books,” said Farris.

The low clothing supply means parents are now only able to take home sometimes two outfits.

“They really love the fact that they can go through and find something special for their baby. Sometimes they'll take 30 minutes to go through those hangers because they want to find just the right outfit for the baby,” said Farris.

And with close to 70 babies helped each day, donations are needed so the racks don't go bare.

While the organization is really low in the 12 months to 4T size, Farris said it will accept any sizes, new and gently used.
