Earnhardt Auto Centers Hosts Baby Formula Drive to Redistribute Supplies Amid Shortage

Share This:


Earnhardt Auto Centers, in partnership with St. Vincent de Paul and Arizona Mommies, is holding a baby formula drive to help alleviate the current shortage.

Parents and caregivers are encouraged to drop off any unneeded, unused formula for redistribution. 


"This redistribution drive is in response to the baby formula shortage affecting the United States," said Mollie Everett, corporate advertising manager for Earnhardt Auto Centers. "We are hoping area parents who have unused cans of formula will respond to this request. It's a matter of moving this critical food source into the hands of area parents who are struggling to find baby formula in stores."


"Being a parent with an infant is hard enough without the worry that you may not be able to feed your baby," said Allison Ott, founder of Arizona Mommies, an online forum and social motherhood community. 


The drive runs from May 16-30. The public is encouraged to check their cupboards for single-serving packets, liquid bottles and sample sizes, as well as larger cans of powder infant formulas and toddler formulas. 


Only sealed, non-expired formula products are requested. To find a convenient drop-off spot, a list of dealership locations can be found at NoBull.com.


"It is critical that generous people do NOT rush out and buy infant formula," said Everett. "We need to keep the available formula in stores for parents who are seeking it."


For those looking for additional ways to help, purchased baby wipes and diapers will be accepted for distribution by St. Vincent de Paul, an Arizona charitable organization. This is a good time for parents to get rid of any unneeded, open packages of diapers as well.


"Our community is full of moms that are actively providing support for one another in a variety of ways," said Ott. "And the public's assistance in this redistribution effort will help expand that support to more parents in the Valley."
