The 21st edition of the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive will run from November 16 to 23.
Anyone with donations can drop them off at one of our 100 plus participating real estate offices. Click here for a list of participating offices.
Since 1995, volunteer Realtors from across the Lower Mainland have worked with their clients during the winter months to coordinate donations of blankets and warm clothing for those most in need.
These annual efforts have created the Lower Mainland’s largest and longest-running blanket drive program.
Each year, the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive provides warm clothing and blankets to more than 19,000 Lower Mainland residents in need.
Since the Blanket Drive began in 1995, the program has helped more than 275,000 people in our communities keep warm and dry during the winter months.
All donations remain in the community in which they were collected.
