The Right Steps family support group, in partnership with the Savanna Knights of Columbus, has limited supplies of baby formula available.
This service will be provided without charge to those families who are struggling with obtaining formula.
“When the shortage of formula was evident the Savanna Knights of Columbus generously donated baby formula, as they can obtain it, to a grateful Right Steps,” said KC member John McConnel Jr.
The Right Steps family support program is designed to provide three years of services for mothers and their babies. They provide information and education in parenting issues such as child development, general parenting issues and compassionate support.
“The Right Steps has activities which will help your child to enter school ready to learn,” said lead parent educator Tara Francke. “The program fits into your family lifestyle”
Francke said she will be eager to assist mothers and their babies in helping assure a safe, healthy productive first three years of life for their child.
Families with children from birth to three years of age are offered these free family services.
The Knights of Columbus of St John the Baptist Catholic Church in Savanna provides community help where needed, brotherhood, and evangelism for Jesus Christ.
Parents do not have to be signed up for The Right Step program to obtain formula. For babies 0-12 months, contact the Right Steps office at 815-684- 5191. For babies over 12 months, contact John McConnel at 815-244-4005.
Anyone interested in donating to this program may contact either Roberta Smith at the Rights Steps office number or McConnel.
