The Baby Depot | East Hamilton Children’s charity.

Our response to COVID-19

The global COVID-19 pandemic is causing more families in need to face an uncertain reality. The Baby Depot is committed to continuing to support these families by providing essential baby items to our youngest neighbours. Although we are unable to collect clothing and items at this time, we value your financial support more than ever.

Every baby deserves hope.

Help provide life’s essentials to a baby in need.

1 in 5 children in Hamilton live in poverty.

With your generous support, we are able to provide a year's worth of clothing and essentials to babies in need to help them thrive and to lend a hand to their parents.

Connecting neighbours, one need at a time.

You can help by providing gently-used clothing and baby essentials!

When we are able to give a baby in need a year's worth of clothing and essentials, we are saying they matter and someone cares. It also enables that baby's family to focus their resources on creating a better environment for their child.

Our Impact this Year:

  • 110 Hours Volunteered
  • 5,250 Items Distributed
  • 6 Partner Agencies
  • 85 Babies Helped
We recently welcomed five pregnant women within a period of four months. The Baby Depot enabled us to help with some of the basic things expectant mothers need. What The Baby Depot offers is crucial to families of newly arrived refugees in our city.
