SURREY — For a 21st year, realtors across the Lower Mainland will collect donations for local charities.

The annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive was launched Monday (Nov. 16) and continues until Nov. 23. It’s the largest and longest-running blanket drive in the region.

Donations can include new and gently used blankets and sleeping bags, coats, hats, gloves, scarves, new socks and underwear.

Real estate offices from Hope to Squamish will accept donations during the week-long event, and all donations will go to charities in the community in which they were collected. For the list of drop-off locations, visit Rebgv.org/blanket-drive-drop-locations.
