The 27th annual REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive begins November 15
The 27th annual REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive begins this Monday, November 15 and we need your donations.
From November 15 to 22, REALTORS® across the region will collect donations of blankets, sleeping bags, warm winter clothing, and new socks and underwear for those most in need.
The donations are then sorted and delivered to charities and organizations in the same area in which they were collected.
The public can drop donations off at one of the 100 plus participating real estate offices. Click here for a list of participating offices.
“This year new charities have called us asking for donations of warm clothing and blankets,” said Taylor Biggar, Chair, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. “We can’t help them all without your support. Please give what you can and help us spread the word.”
“The Blanket Drive gives us all opportunities to get involved in helping those in our community to meet basic human needs,” said Larry Anderson, President, Fraser Valley Real Estate Board. “Now more meaningful than ever, as the Board celebrates its centennial year, supporting the community by collecting items for local charities reflects a proud legacy of giving which began 100 years ago.”
Since the Blanket Drive began, the program has helped more than 385,000 people in our communities keep warm and dry.
