  • In May of 2008, we had the opportunity to meet with Alberta Health Minister Dave Hancock to introduce him to the work of Basically Babies. He was so impressed by our program that he featured our organization in his Spring Constituency Newsletter.  In his letter he says:
"I am proud of the work Basically Babies contributes to our city. They are the only organization in Edmonton whose sole purpose is to provide for the basic outfitting needs of infants in this way. As more young and impoverished families migrate to our area, seeking a better life, the outstanding volunteers at Basically Babies give these families a practical gift as well as a sense of the hope and promise that our community has to offer."
