The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive 2015

  • Do you have any gently used winter wear, blankets, sleeping bags, and new extra undergarments looking for new homes? Team Kerr is joining the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive, once again! It’s the largest and longest running blanket drive, and has helped Vancouverites in need for over 20 years. It began when a group of REALTORS® observed the Downtown Eastside homelessness and said, “We’ve got to do something.” They called on their colleagues to help the homeless keep warm by collecting blankets and coats. It was such a success that they were able to help 3,000 people! Over two decades later, the Blanket Drive has grown to include more than 100 real estate offices who now help single mothers, the working poor, those getting back into the workforce, and the homeless –wow! At Team Kerr, we absolutely believe in giving back to our communities, through donations to environmental organizations, local schools, and the arts or being a part of events like the Blanket Drive! What are we looking for?

    • blankets and sleeping bags
    • pillows (new)
    • warm clothing: coats, jeans, pants, sweats
    • scarves, gloves, mittens, hats
    • socks (new)
    • underwear (new)

    All donations collected in a community stay in that community. The Blanket Drive runs from Nov. 16-23. Drop your donations off at our office: 4th floor North Office Tower Oakridge Mall 410-650 West 41st Avenue Vancouver, BC Office Hours: Mon-Fri 9am-8pm and Sat/Sun 9am-5pm. Thank you so much in advance!
