A New York breast milk bank has employed a bad*ss lesbian biker gang to quickly deliver milk to babies in need.
The bikers come from the Sirens Women’s Motorcycle Club, which is NYC’s oldest and largest bike club for women.
Hastings-on-Hudson’s New York Milk Bank (NYMB) teamed up with the bikers to deliver breastmilk to babies who aren’t getting enough milk from their moms.
Julie Bouchet-Horwitz, founder of Milk Bank, needed a way to distribute product quickly and thought of motorcycles which can manoeuvre through traffic easily.
Where breast milk is involved, timing is of the essence and could mean the difference between life and death for a baby. Many of the babies who receive donations from the NYMB are premature or sick.
The group describe themselves as “strong women” and when approached they didn’t hesitate for a second to help out.
“It was pretty unanimous to help out. Little girls when they see us on the road they light up like ‘Wow! girls can do that’ so delivering breastmilk is just a little bit cooler,” said one of the riders.
