"For the 19th year in a row, Realtors from the real estate boards in Greater Vancouver, the Fraser Valley and Chilliwack and district collected enough donations of coats, blankets, sleeping bags and warm clothing to help more than 20,000 people during the annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive.
The Dr. Peter Centre, one of Vancouver’s recipient charities, offers health programs and long-term and supportive housing to individuals with HIV/AIDS requiring specialized care. Another regular beneficiary of the Blanket Drive is the Surrey Memorial Hospital’s Patient Resource Department. Every year, the hospital receives winter coats to give to patients who need them.
Volunteer Realtors pick up, sort and deliver donations dropped off by colleagues, clients, the public, corporations, retailers, community groups and schools. The drop-off locations are real estate offices spread across the region, between Whistler and Hope.
Since 1994, the Blanket Drive has grown to become the largest collection of its kind in the Lower Mainland. Over the years, the program has assisted more than 225,000 people."
