On November 20th & 21st, Blanket BC Society is launching its seventh annual “Drive on the Line” campaign taking place along the Canada Line.
Last year there were over 5,000 blankets, 1,500 articles of clothing & over $7,200 collected!
This year’s goal is 10,000 blankets!
This two-day blanket drive will be collecting donations from passengers and public alike at 7 different stations.
You can donate at Waterfront, Yaletown/Roundhouse, Vancouver City Centre, Broadway/City Hall, Oakridge/41st, Bridgeport and Richmond Brighouse.
Accepted donations are: socks, scarves, mittens, toques and, of course, blankets.
All donated items will then be divided up and distributed to over 75 shelter programs and organizations that work directly with society’s most impoverished individuals and families throughout Metro Vancouver, Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island.
This great initiative still needs more volunteers for this weekend.
Head to their website to volunteer your time and help #SpreadTheWarmth!
