Baby care supplies given to more than 100 Carter County families

CARTER COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) - Around 140 families with infants and toddlers received some baby necessities on Tuesday at the Carter County Health Department.

The Baby Mobile, sponsored by Infant Crisis Services in Oklahoma City, gave out a week's worth of diapers, formula and food to families in need.

The supplies were bought through donations and given at no cost.

Organizers say they usually see about 100 families come out to the Baby Mobile stops.

"We know, we look at statistics, a lot of babies are living in poverty or don't have enough diapers or formula to last through each week. We are here to fill in the gap with great services like the Carter County Health Department's WIC program and just fill in the gap with basic needs that every baby should have," said Baby Mobile manager Nicole Sukenis.

Any caregiver of a child under the age of four can qualify to receive supplies.
