Donations from the North Shore will be sorted into the different categories for the shelters at our 9th Annual Pizza Sorting Party! This year we will be having the party at FERGUSON MOVING AND STORAGE as space donated by Lorne MACINNES was offered to give more room. LONSDALE EVENT RENTALS are donating tables to sort on during the party. We also have our first sponsor for the pizza and refreshments at the party by THE MORTGAGE GROUP -EDGEMONT VILLAGE. North Shore realtors as well as local community volunteers and family will help to sort the items and then deliver to shelters such as HARVEST PROJECT, THE LOOKOUT SOCIETY, COVENANT HOUSE and THE VANCOUVER POLICE DEPARTMENT (blankets for the Downtown Eastside). We are so very thankful for all our sponsors for their donations!
Blankets are desperately needed for the Downtown Eastside, while warm clothing is needed for men, women and children of all ages for the shelters. All items are very much appreciated by all that receive. One bag can make a difference! Last year we collected a record breaking 406 bags on the North Shore! Let’s have another great year! Thank you for your support!

Support the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive and help your neighbours in need
The 21st annual REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive kicks off on November 16. The program is the Lower Mainland’s largest and longest-running blanket drive.
Each year, the REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive provides warm clothing and blankets to more than 19,000 Lower Mainland residents in need.
From November 16 to 23, volunteer Realtors across the region will work with their clients to coordinate donations of blankets and warm winter clothing for those most in need. The donations are then sorted and delivered to charities in the same community in which they were collected.
“Every community in the Lower Mainland relies on donations from the program and we need the public’s support once again to ensure we can meet this year’s need,” Darcy McLeod, Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver president said.
Anyone with donations can drop them off at one of our 100 plus participating real estate offices. Click here for a list of participating offices.
“The need is real and your donations make a difference. We’re looking for blankets, coats, gloves and other warm winter clothing for men, women and children,” Jorda Maisey, Fraser Valley Real Estate Board president said.
Since the Blanket Drive began in 1995, the program has helped more than 275,000 people in our communities keep warm and dry during the winter months.
Clothing items we’re looking for:
• blankets, sleeping bags
• warm clothing – coats, jeans, pants, sweaters
• scarves, gloves, mitts, hats
• socks (new)
• underwear (new)
The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive is a partnership between the Realtors of the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board and the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board and their communities.

“Michele was very professional representing both sides. I think both the seller and us (the buyers) were satisfied with the negotiations and coming to an agreed upon price.
Michele followed up with all of our questions promptly, and the seller would return answers to any questions within 24 hours.
Very satisfied with the whole experience, as she spent the entire day with us viewing property and left only after we’ve exhausted ourselves.”
