Real estate agents in the Greater Vancouver area are starting their annual blanker drive today (Nov. 14) in to help those most in need.

This is the largest and longest-running blanket drive program in the Lower Mainland,” Charles Wiebe, Fraser Valley Real Estate Board president said. “Each year, the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive provides warm clothing and blankets to thousands of Lower Mainland residents, but we can’t do this without your help.”

Since the initiative began in 1995, it has helped more than 290,000 people in the region keep warm and dry in the winter.
