realtors care blanket drive

The largest and longest running blanket drive in the Metro Vancouver is back again this year for its 20th anniversary. The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive provides warm relief to Vancouver’s low or no-income residents, helping more than 250,000 people in Metro Vancouver for over two decades.

The 2014 Blank Drive runs November 17 to November 24. The donations are then delivered to charities and organizations in local areas.

Share some warmth this holiday season by donating new or gently used:

  • Blankets or sleeping bags
  • Warm clothing – coats, jeans, pants, sweaters
  • Scarves, gloves, mitts, hats
  • Socks (new), in high demand
  • Underwear (new)
  • Pillows (new)

Donations will be collected at over 100 participating real estate offices throughout the Metro Vancouver and donated to over 40 local organizations.

Your kind generosity will help keep those in need warm and comfortable over Vancouver’s winter months. Check out the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive 2014 video to see the impact you could have.
