REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive
The REALTORS Care® Blanket began in 1994 when a group of Realtors called on colleagues to gather blankets to help the homeless keep warm in the Downtown Eastside.
The Blanket Drive is now an annual event driven by Realtors of three local real estate boards, including the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. This is the longest running and most successful program of its kind in the region.
It helps the homeless, single mothers, the working poor, and those getting back into the workforce.
REALTORS Care® Shelter Drive
In 2009, the REALTORS Care® Shelter Drive was created to help raise funds for housing-related charities. Each year up to three such charities are selected to receive support, based on suggestions from Realtors.
REALTORS Care® Awards
For many REALTORS®, their profession is about more than selling real estate. It means being an active part of their community.
REALTORS® have raised millions of dollars and volunteered countless hours to many worthy causes.
That’s why, in 1999, the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver created the REALTORS Care® Awards, a community service recognition program that recognizes individuals and companies who give back to the neighbourhoods where they live and work.
Realtors across the Lower Mainland work hard to improve their communities and give back to their neighbours. You can see how they contribute by checking out the Real Estate News section of this site.
