What is their goal/mission?
In 1990 Karen Ridlon, a pediatric nurse practitioner, started Eastside Baby Corner (“EBC”) with a goal to help children have what they need to grow, develop, and thrive. Thirty years later, their goal has stayed the same, and they have grown to now provide over 100,000 orders, valued at $3.6 million, of essential items to those in need, at no cost to family or their agency partners.
How do they accomplish their mission?
EBC has three locations in Issaquah, Kenmore, and Bremerton where they accept donation and provide services. These locations, in addition to their partner network of over 50 health and human service organizations, allow EBC to provide immediate and essential health, care, and safety goods to children ages birth to 12 who are experiencing poverty, homelessness, or family disruption.
Some ways you can help Eastside Baby Corner:
EBC accepts donations of goods, money, and/or time through volunteer work. Donations of goods such as diapers, formula, baby food, car seats, clothing, safety items, and more, are all crucial to ensuring EBC can provide the highest quality support to those in need.
