This year’s REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive runs Monday, November 16-23.
Each year we collect and distribute enough blankets and warm clothing to help 19,000 of our neighbours in need. Over the life of this event, we’ve helped more than 275,000 in our communities stay warm and dry.
It’s time to winterize your closets for blankets and warm clothing you can donate to the Blanket Drive!
Needed items for all ages include:
•gently used or new blankets or sleeping bags
•warm clothing, coats
•hats, gloves, scarves
•new socks and underwear
This is the largest and longest running blanket drive in the region. We help about 19,000 of our neighbours in need each year. Since 1994, this event has helped more than 275,000 people in need.
“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.

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.
The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive is a partnership between the Realtors of the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board and the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board and their communities.
