Are you finding yourself in need of diapers, food, and formula for your baby? The Infant Crisis Services’ BabyMobile will be in Guthrie on July 1 at the fairgrounds.

Nicole Sukenis, manager of BabyMobile Services, explained, “Infant Crisis Services has been around since 1984.

We realized after operating for a while that transportation is a big barrier for families. In 2013, we came up with the idea of the BabyMobile to get our services out to people.”

Their two buses lovingly known as Thelma and Louise are visiting about 20 different counties.

The pandemic threw their schedule off, but now they are getting back out. Any parent or legal guardian of a child from birth to three years can come to the Guthrie fairgrounds and receive a week’s supply of food, formula, and diapers during the drive-through event. The event will be from

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There are no income requirements and they are not restricting their services to Logan County only.

“Our mission is that no baby should go hungry,” said Sukenis. “We want to ensure every parent has the essentials they need for their children. We know that crisis situations happen for all of us and we don’t want parents to worry about whether or not their baby has enough food or diapers.”

Infant Crisis Services also offers supplemental classes. Forty percent of their clients are Hispanic/Latinx so a lot of classes are conducted in Spanish and include topics like finance and parenting classes.

Six times a year they also offer car seat events where they install car seats for a $10 donation. Their office is located

Their office is located at 4224 N. Lincoln Blvd. in Oklahoma City. You can reach them by calling 405-528-3663. Donations such as gently used clothing, books, diapers, and wipes are always needed. Financial donations are also appreciated.

“I want to give a shout out to the Logan County Health Department as they are essential to what we do.

They know what the community needs are, and are a key component to help get the word out,” expressed Sukenis.
