We continue to “outfit newborns in need” (with modified protocols) during the COVID-19 pandemic situation, although our Edmonton and Calgary offices/warehouses are currently running only modified volunteer programs.
Watch our social media and check back for updates! Please keep us in mind for future volunteering as we will need our volunteers more than ever!
Introducing…growing program operations in Calgary!
We are so excited to announce that the 2 year Pilot Project of our Layette Program in Calgary is now complete and we have entered into full operation of our charitable work to help “outfit newborns in need” in the City of Calgary. As part of this plan, we have moved to a larger space that will accommodate this expansion and allow for future growth as we work to establish, over time, a permanent and fully operational Calgary program. Our new location details are as follows:
Location: 10 – 1826 25th Avenue NE, Calgary, Alberta T2E 7K1
Hours: Tuesdays 9:00am-3:00pm or by appointment (Note: Christmas Closure Dec 21, 2020-Jan 11, 2021)

We greatly appreciate the support for Basically Babies during the pilot project and encourage you to reach out to us anytime to learn more about our charitable work where we provide layettes to families with newborns living in situations of extreme need in the Calgary area, serving the needs of marginalized and needy families in this vibrant community.
