Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board's Blanket Drive

(December 22, 2011 )

Since 1994, the real estate community has partnered with local charities to distribute items collected in the region, in that time helping more than 185,000 people.

During this year’s REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive, Nov. 28 - Dec. 5, people from across the Lower Mainland benefited from the many contributions distributed through local charities.

“We anticipate the hundreds of bags of coats and blankets we received this year will provide a change of clothes and a fresh blanket to every client who needs it until April 2012,” said MaryAnne Connor, founder/president of Nightshift Ministries.  “This donation program is an integral part of our mission to assist those in need.”
