Metro Vancouver REALTORS® Have Been Sharing the Warmth For 20 years
This year, the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive marks 20 years. Twenty years of sharing with those in need, 20 years of helping our communities.
It started when a group of REALTORS® called on their colleagues to gather what blankets they could to help the homeless keep warm in the Downtown Eastside.
Who could have imagined that two decades later, the Blanket Drive would expand to include members of three real estate boards and, as well as the homeless, was helping single mothers, the working poor, and those getting back into the workforce.
