Drive on the Line 2011

Blanket BC Society is launching the 3rd Annual “Drive on the Line” campaign. It takes place on Friday, Nov. 25 & Saturday, Nov. 26 from 8am to 5pm along the Canada Line.  This is a two-day blanket drive where over one hundred volunteers will collect donations from the public; socks, scarves, mitts,  and of course, blankets.

Donations will be divided up and distributed within that week to individuals and charitable organizations such as Covenant House, SHARE Society, Mission Community Services, Union Gospel Mission and Lookout Aid Society who work with the homeless and poverty stricken families, all of which depend on the public for support.

Blanket BC Society aims to collect/distribute over 12,000 blankets directly from this blanket drive alone. British Columbia is preparing for one of the worst winters, and as it is our mission, want to prevent people from dying on our streets and help them survive another bitter cold season.
