The 17th annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive runs from Nov. 28 to Dec. 5 in Abbotsford and throughout the Fraser Valley/Lower Mainland.
Hundreds of real estate offices will serve as drop-off depots for new or used blankets, warm clothing, coats, sleeping bags, as well as new socks and underwear. Realtors will pick up, sort and deliver the donations.
The drive collects, on average, 4,300 bags of items in communities from Whistler to Chilliwack each year.
Donations stay in the community in which they are collected or, if the volumes are too large, go to charities in neighbouring communities.
