Blanket drive kicks off next week

Realtors collecting warm clothes and blankets for needy in Harrison and Agassiz

Local Realtors are once again asking for the community’s help in giving warmth to those who need it most.

The 19th Annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive runs next week, from Nov. 18 – 25, and two local realty offices are participating. Those wishing to donate can do so by dropping off items at either the Sutton Group in Harrison or Remax in Agassiz.

Everything collected will be given out through Agassiz Harrison Community Services.

The items in need are clean blankets, scarves, gloves, coats, hats, sleeping bags, and other warm clothing for men, women and children. They are also collecting new socks and underwear.

The blanket drive is held in communities from Whistler to Hope.

To drop off locally, visit Sutton Group West Coast Realty at 875 Hot Springs Road in Harrison from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Mondays through Friday, or at the Remax Nyda Realty office in Agassiz, at #2-1824 #9 Hwy. from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.
