Realtors’ blanket drive ramps up again

From Nov. 17-24, the Realtors Care Blanket Drive will be held across the region

A blanket drive that has helped warm more than 250,000 Lower Mainland residents is marking its 20th year this month.

From Nov. 17-24, the Realtors Care Blanket Drive will be held across the region, collecting donations of blankets, sleeping bags, winter clothing and new socks and underwear.

The items are then sorted and delivered to charities and other organizations – including NightShift Street Ministries in Surrey – in the same area from which they were collected, benefiting the homeless, single moms, the working poor and those getting back into the workforce.

In South Surrey/White Rock, donations may be dropped off to Hugh & McKinnon Realty (14007 North Bluff Rd.), HomeLife Benchmark (1-1920 152 St.), Royal LePage Northstar (118-15272 Croydon Dr.), Re/Max Colonial Pacific Realty (15414 24 Ave.) or Sutton Group-West Coast White Rock (15595 24 Ave.).
