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.

I have seen how much new parents appreciate the support the Baby Depot provides – the package that is put together is individualized to the family, including even the specific type of formula used. It is also delivered which really eases what can be a stressful time for new parents. As a worker in the Hamilton community, it is nice to know that this resource is available and I have used it readily.

The agency is very grateful for the hampers that are given to young parents who need help due to poverty and minimal support to help them prepare for their new babies. The Baby Depot has been an integral part of the agency helping to support the young parents that are served by the Society. The young parents have said that they are very happy to receive a generous gift from the Baby depot for their babies. We have helped 10 new parents with your hampers through The Baby Depot.
