Keeping Vancouver Warm

Those In Need

A lot of people depend on the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive. What started as a compassionate offer of simple warmth to those living on the streets in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside is now the largest, longest-running charitable blanket and warm clothing collection in the region.

17 Years

Since 1995, more than 165,000 people have received clothing or a blanket from the annual drive. The 17th annual Blanket Drive will run from November 28 to December 5 across the Lower Mainland.

Thousands of REALTORS® and members of the public will donate. Hundreds of real estate offices will act as drop-off depots and dozens of REALTORS® will pick-up, sort and deliver the donations.

Most Needed

New or gently used

  • blankets, sleeping bags
  • warm clothing – coats, jeans, pants, sweaters
  • scarves, gloves, mitts, hats

New (women, children, men)

  • socks
  • underwear


Donations to the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive stay within the communities in which they are donated, or if the volumes are too large, go to charities in greatest need in neighbouring communities.
