Event runs from Nov. 17 to 24 and collection areas can be found in Abbotsford and Mission

Local realtors help support a blanket drive.

The campaign, which runs across the Lower Mainland, collects gently used blankets, sleeping bags, warm clothing, and jackets, as well as new socks and underwear.

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

• Century 21 Ace Agencies, #2 – 33555 South Fraser Way;
