As a dad, I know how difficult it is to support a little one. Babies need a lot of supplies, such as diapers and formula, and these items really add up. Unfortunately, not every parent can afford to provide their children with these essential supplies. Here at Fraser Valley Beltone, we’re all about helping people; and not just with their hearing. That’s why I’m pleased to have the opportunity to help one of my favourite charitable organizations, Basics for Babies!
For every hearing test booked during July and August, we’ll donate to Basics For Babies, a local charity that provides Lower Mainland Food Banks with essential baby supplies. Visit us at Fraser Valley Beltone this summer to help a family in need. Together, we can make our community stronger and make a difference in peoples’ lives!
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 their partners, Basics for Babies has raised over $2 million and hundreds of thousands of pounds of diapers, baby food, formula, pabulum, and other items!
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.
Remember: Babies cannot collect these items themselves, so they need YOUR help! You can help give a baby a better start at Fraser Valley Beltone! Book your hearing test today. Call 604-534-8663 in Langley, or 604-853-8663 in Abbotsford.
