November 13 to 20, 2018
Since it started 24 years ago, the Blanket Drive has helped more than 345,000 people in our communities stay warm and dry. Last year alone, more than 38,000 people received a blanket, coat, or other donation from the Blanket Drive.
Here’s how you can help
Between November 13 and 20, REALTOR® volunteers will collect warm clothing and blankets across the region. The donations are then distributed to partner charities from the same community where the item was donated.
Please donate the following items for all ages:
- gently used or new blankets or sleeping bags
- warm clothing, coats
- hats, gloves, scarves
- new socks and underwear
- plastic ponchos, bivy sacks
Socks are especially important for the homeless. They’re as good as gold. Find out why by listening to this item from CBC radio, Sunday Edition: http://bit.ly/2k6t0tF
Drop off your donations at any of these Lower Mainland real estate office locations.
