[Created by the advertising agency Goodby Silverstein & Partners for the California Milk Processor Board in 1993, it was later licensed for use by milk processors and dairy farmers.]
For our organization this past month the answer was YES! We've GOT MILK! And lots of it! We were donated 10 pallets of shelf milk These individual boxed milks were so handy and perfect for being transported, stored and delivered to kidsof Tijuana in need of the nutritional healthy drink.
Milk is very expensive in Mexico (even more than the average cost in the US) thus often not a regular part of families diet. Sadly sodas are more affordable and available in mass quantities.
So when we had an opportunity to receive these thousands of milk boxes, being offered from a partner organization an hour away, we rallied and made as many trips needed to collect it. Otherwise there was talk of it being donated to a goat farm. While we would sure support an opportunity to help farmers (and provide a nice treat for goats ha) we were perhaps blessed more so to see the smiles on the kids faces.
