Local realtors help support a blanket drive.

The 20th annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive takes place from Nov. 17 to 24.

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.

Since 1995, the Blanket Drive has supported about 250,000 people.
