Support the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive and help your neighbours in need

The 21st annual REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive kicks off on November 16. The program is the Lower Mainland’s largest and longest-running blanket drive. 

Each year, the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive provides warm clothing and blankets to more than 19,000 Lower Mainland residents in need.

From November 16 to 23, volunteer Realtors across the region will work with their clients to coordinate donations of blankets and warm winter clothing for those most in need. The donations are then sorted and delivered to charities in the same community in which they were collected.

“Every community in the Lower Mainland relies on donations from the program and we need the public’s support once again to ensure we can meet this year’s need,” Darcy McLeod, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver president said.

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.

“The need is real and your donations make a difference. We’re looking for blankets, coats, gloves and other warm winter clothing for men, women and children,” Jorda Maisey, Fraser Valley Real Estate Board president said.

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.
