Realtors bring warmth to locals in need

Realtors now looking for toy donations to beef up Agassiz Harrison Christmas hampers

Every year, local Realtors rally the community together to donate new and gently used blankets, coats, scarves, hats and gloves.

And this year, almost 100 items were dropped off at the Agassiz Re/Max for the 17th annual Realtors Care Blanket Drive. All the donations were dropped off this week for the Agassiz-Harrison Community Services, who will put those items into the hands of those who need them most.

Now, the focus is on the kids. The Agassiz Re/Max Christmas Toy House is asking for new, unwrapped gifts to be delivered to children in need this year.

There is a special need for gifts for children older than eight, including hoodies, toques, nail polish sets, hand held video games, board games and gift cards to places like fast food restaurants and movie stores.

Items can be dropped off at the Agassiz Re/Max office any weekday until December 9.
