About Basics for Babies
Basics for Babies® was created in 1994 when 93.7 JRfm recognized a chronic shortage of baby products at Lower Mainland Food Banks. With the help of our partners, Basics for Babies® has raised over $2 million and hundreds of thousands of pounds of diapers, baby food, formula, pabulum, and other items! Helping Basics for Babies® has become a large part of our listeners lives as we all make our communities stronger.
Unfortunately, the need for baby necessities is greater than ever. With the current economic situation, more and more Food Bank recipients in the Lower Mainland are children. Basics for Babies® needs to continue to meet the challenge to supply Food Banks with necessary supplies to help this ever-growing population. We feel children should have the best possible start to life so that we can minimize other problems later.
