About the club

Parental socioeconomic status is a key determinant of healthy child development, and diminished access to material resources has consistently been associated with poorer health and academic outcomes. Given the pivotal cognitive and social maturation that occurs in the first few years of life, there is value in intervening early to minimize not only child health disparities, but also their subsequent impact on adult health.

Kits for Kids is a student-led organization affiliated with McGill University’s Medical Students’ Society. Our main focus is to provide free supplies to underprivileged children in the region of Montreal. Through a partnership with local sponsors and pediatric care centers (i.e. Tiny Tots, Montreal Children’s Hospital, etc.), we distribute a variety of essential hygienic products such as diapers, wipes, baby shampoo, etc. to families in need. By alleviating some of the financial hardship experienced by low-income families, Kits for Kids aims to mitigate the effects of poverty on children’s physical and mental well-being.
