Coats for Kids campaign kicks off

Last year, Metro Vancouver residents donated more than 3,000 scarves, gloves, blankets and new unwrapped gifts for distribution to children, teenagers and adults.

This year, the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association hopes to do at least as well.

The association has launched its 17th annual Coats for Kids campaign in support of the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, which helps provide a better Christmas for families in need.

In addition to the GVHBA office, 38 companies at 64 locations in 14 municipalities will serve as coat drop-off sites from Nov. 19 to Dec. 7.

Local drop-off locations for Coats for Kids Campaign include:

Peace Arch News, 2411 160 St.; Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association, 7495 132 St.; Lakewood Management, 7795 128 St.; MPB Construction, 15515 24 Ave., Pacific Home Warranty Insurance Services, 15240 56 Ave.; Shell Busey’s HouseSmart Home Services, 2320 King George Blvd.; Steels Industrial Products, 15055 54A Ave.; Stor-More Closet & Blinds, 19231 54 Ave.; Surrey North Delta Leader, 5450 152 St.; and BC Classifieds 5460 152 St.
