The drive is geared towards helping the homeless fend off the cold. As realtors, we'd like to collect gently used blankets and sleeping bags. Clothing to fend off the cold is also accepted, in particular, gently used: coats, jeans, pants, sweaters, scarves, gloves, mitts, hats. New socks and underwear are also gratefully accepted.
There are currently over 400 homeless people in Surrey. It is rewarding to know that all donations collected in a community stay in that community. My office, Homelife Benchmark Realty in White Rock, located at #1 - 1920 152nd Street, White Rock, is one of the drop off locations. If that location is not convenient, a list of drop locations can be found at http://www.rebgv.org/blanket-drive-drop-locations-0
You can also pass any donations on to me and I'll ensure they are dropped off at my Homelife office. If there is another community you prefer to assist, I'm also happy to drop the blankets and clothing off in Langley, North Delta, South Delta, Richmond or New Westminster for you.
