Furniture and home decor store Urban Barn has launched its third annual Blanket the Country in Warmth campaign.
Last month, the company – which has a location in South Surrey, at 15045 32 Ave. – began collecting donations for homeless shelters.
For every $5 donation, Urban Barn will donate a new fleece blanket to a local shelter. In Surrey, Langley and Abbotsford, the initiative will support Gateway Shelter.
Last year, Urban Barn donated 10,000 blankets to the cause and this year is aiming to donate 12,000.
The campaign runs until Dec. 14.
