24th annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive runs until Nov. 20 in Mission

All donations stay in the community in which they are collected

The 24th annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive runs from Nov. 13 to 20 in Mission and throughout the Fraser Valley/Lower Mainland.

Participating real estate offices will serve as drop-off depots for new or used blankets, warm clothing, coats, sleeping bags, hats, gloves, scarves, and new socks and underwear.

Donations stay in the community in which they are collected or, if the volumes are too large, go to charities in neighbouring communities.

In total, the Realtors Care Blanket Drive hopes to collect enough clothing to help more than 30,000 people stay warm this winter.

Participating realty offices in Mission are:

– HomeLife Glenayre Realty, 1-32540 Logan Ave.

– RE/MAX Little Oak Realty, 33119 First Ave.

– Royal LePage Preferred Realty, 1-7221 Park St.

– Royal LePage Wheeler Cheam Realty, 33174 First Ave.

Items collected will help local organizations in Mission including Lydia Home (Union Gospel Mission), Hope Central Ministry (New Heights Church), Mission Community Services Society, Mission Friendship Centre Society and Mission Youth House.
