The 18th annual REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive begins Nov. 26

VANCOUVER – The 18th annual REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive starts in less than one week. This year, the Blanket Drive runs from November 26 to December 3.

With the weather beginning to turn and charities and shelters facing the busiest time of the year, the need for Blanket Drive donations remains high. As always, we’re looking for gently used blankets, sleeping bags, warm winter clothing and jackets; in addition to new socks and underwear.

“After almost two decades in our communities, it’s amazing to see the level of support the Blanket Drive attracts and the difference it makes,” says Scott Olson, President of the FVREB. “Our regular donors have made this the largest warm clothing drive in our region and now with social media, we’re building even more awareness.

“Every pair of gloves, coat, sweater or blanket goes to someone who needs it. No donation is too small. The more we receive, the more we can help."

People are encouraged to bring donations to any one of the participating real estate offices across the Lower Mainland. Donations stay within the communities in which they are donated, or if the volumes are too large, go to charities in greatest need in neighbouring communities.

Each year, the Blanket Drive collects enough donations to help protect about 20,000 vulnerable people in our region from the cold, wet winter. Since 1995, the Blanket Drive has supported at least 185,000 people.
