NORMAN — Infant Crisis Services will open a branch in Moore to better assist the babies and toddlers affected by the May tornadoes.

The branch will be located inside Platt College at 201 North Eastern, in Moore, and will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Wednesday beginning July 10.

“We have helped hundreds of families who were impacted by the tornadoes that devastated Moore and other communities across central Oklahoma,” said Infant Crisis Services’ Executive Director, Miki Farris. “But many of those families still need our help. By opening a branch in Moore, we are making it even easier for those who need assistance to get it without ever leaving their own community.”

Infant Crisis Services, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, provides the basic necessities of life to more than 12,000 babies and toddlers in central Oklahoma each year. With the help of the community, Infant Crisis Services is able to supply life-sustaining formula and food as well as diapers and clothing for babies and toddlers in times of crisis.

Infant Crisis Services is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, and serves referred clients by appointment. Se habla Español. For more information, call 528-3663 or visit infantcrisis.org.
