DUMONT, N.J. — Women from across Bergen County are turning out in droves to donate breast milk to the family of a Dumont woman who died last week while giving birth to twin girls.
Daily Voice received nearly 100 emails from the local moms looking to send the Roman family frozen bags of milk, after hearing that Julia Roman was planning on breast feeding her girls, Isabella and Grace -- as she did with 5-year-old Victoria.
Katie Belthoff of New Milford, Amanda Dilorio of Bergenfield, and Donna Ore of Wanaque are storing the milk in their freezers. A freezer for the family was donated on Wednesday morning.
To donate breast milk, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. (To drop breast milk donations in Wanaque, email firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Julia Roman also had two older children, Dwayne, 19 and Valeria, 26. Dwayne is leaving for the Air Force in January and Valerie is graduating with a bachelors degree this semester.
To donate gift cards to Dwayne and Valerie, email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To place a food order for the family, email Brittany Poveromo of Brittany's Kitchen at email@example.com.
