Today marks the launch of Greater Vancouver’s longest running warm-clothing drive - the 19th annual REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive. Charitable organizations throughout our region rely on the proceeds to help some of our most vulnerable citizens during the coldest period of the year.
REALTORS® across the region are asking the public to round up their warm winter woollies for donation to help those in need in their communities.
Chances are high that many of the 1,600 homeless people currently living in Vancouver, 400 in Surrey, and 200 in Abbotsford have received a blanket, coat or multiple changes of clothing supplied through the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive.
