Guys how cool is this!!!! Use #givemilkmoney during the month of June and @dfamilk will donate a gallon of milk to a family in need! . . We are so lucky to have so many choices at our grocery stores but some families are still in need! Just a friendly reminder to check with your local food banks and see if they need any dairy donations during #Junedairymonth . ....... Repost @dfamilk with @get_repost ・・・ Every summer, more than 18 million children across the country are left without the fundamental nutrition of milk. This #WorldMilkDay, DFA wants to make sure everyone can celebrate by giving back. Every time you post on social media using the hashtag #GiveMilkMoney, we donate a gallon of milk to families in need.
