Blanket drive spreads warmth

Annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive runs Nov. 28-Dec. 5.

In Hope, there are many who are in need, homeless, at-risk of homelessness or those who simply must access the food bank, soup kitchen and other social service agencies to get through the month.

The generous support of community members helps to alleviate pressure from these various social agencies who find themselves in need of additional support to ensure they are able to continue offering much needed social programs.

Hope realtors and the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board are once again hosting the annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive Nov. 28-Dec. 5.

Gently used blankets, sleeping bags, coats, pants, sweaters, scarves, mitts, gloves, hats, new underwear and socks can be dropped off at either the RE/MAX Nyda Realty or Royal Lepage Wheeler Cheam Realty office.

The items collected in Hope will be distributed locally to those who are in need by the Joshua Project.
