The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive

The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive will be collecting until Monday! Instead of letting your old coats and jeans sit in your dresser, bring them to one of our drop-off locations for someone who will really appreciate them. It's starting to get cold, and every article you can offer helps. For locations visit:

The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive story

Way back in 1995, some caring REALTORS® in Vancouver observed the homeless situation in the city’s eastside and said to themselves, we’ve got to do something.

They put out an appeal to their fellow colleagues for warm blankets and coats and collected enough donations to help 3,000 of Vancouver’s homeless in the downtown core.

That single act of kindness has blossomed into one of the largest annual collections of warm clothing and blankets, helping homeless people and the working poor in every single community in the Lower Mainland.

Eighteen years later, thousands of REALTORS® from Whistler to Hope have collected enough donations to help more than 185,000 people in need. Each year, more than 75 dedicated members actually pick-up and deliver all the donations, and well over 100 real estate offices in the Lower Mainland act as collection depots.

The REALTORS Care® Drive now collects an astonishing amount of warm, winter items on behalf of dozens of local charities to help at least 20,000 people each year.
