EBC — Baby Corner in Bremerton, WA
Helping kids reach their full potential tomorrow by meeting their basic needs today.
Eastside Baby Corner (EBC) was founded in 1990 when Karen Ridlon, a local pediatric nurse practitioner, became concerned about the large numbers of babies in her practice that began life without adequate food, clothing, beds or safety equipment. Her commitment to giving these children a stronger start grew from an idea and a few items gathered in her dining room into an agency that, in 2016, filled its 500,000th order of absolute essentials. Thanks to EBC — West Sound, parents are relieved of the stresses of providing basic necessities, which allows them to focus on other crucial matters that affect the family, such as housing and employment. EBC is proud to be the major source of baby food, formula, diapers, cribs and car seats for 11 local food banks and envisions a world where all children are healthy, safe and prepared to build their own futures.
KicKee made a generous donation of layette gowns, bibs, swaddles and lovies to help EBC provide parents with a little something special and everything they need to bring their new baby home from the hospital.
