Builders launch Coats for Kids campaign

Annual event hosted by Greater Vancouver Homebuilders' Association provides warm outerwear for less-fortunate children.

The annual Coats for Kids program hosted by the Greater Vancouver Homebuilders' Association is now underway.

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) has launched its 17th annual Coats for Kids campaign in support of the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, a group whose outreach helps to provide a brighter Christmas for families in need.

In addition to the GVHBA office, 38 member companies at 64 locations in 14 municipalities will serve as coat drop-off sites from Nov. 19 to Dec. 7.

“Last year the response to Coats for Kids was heartwarming as Lower Mainland residents donated more than 3,000 coats, scarves, gloves, blankets and new unwrapped toys and gifts for distribution to children, teenagers and adults,” said GVHBA Chair Blake Hudema.“I am delighted so many members of our association are participating in this annual initiative,” said Hudema.
