Blanket Drive

Its that time of year again.  The 2007 Blanket Drive is cranking up.  Many real estate offices participate. Generally the office serves as a drop off point for donations and some of the Realtors canvass their client base for help.  If you don’t want to help through us, help through someone else.

 If you have any clean blankets, shoes or clothing please drop them off at our office at 3582 East Hastings or at our Main Street office at 4728 Main Street.  If you can’t get by either of those locations but would still like to donate, contact Aaron at aaron@aaronbest.biz  He’ll pick donations up on December 21 and 22.

We got some flak for bringing this up on the blog last year, but the fact is that we’ve been doing it for several years and we’re not about to stop.  If,  for some reason,  you find this distasteful, find another way to contribute.  The need is real.

    I find it hard to believe that anybody would be enough of a jerk to give you “flak” over such a decent and charitable gesture. Shame on them and well-done to you and all others engaged in the project.

    Agree with Geezer. There are always critics of “do-gooders”. Those critics are sometimes correct, but usually useless and have no alternative actions – except for talk. Kudos to you for helping a cold person become warm.

  3. I too agree. Warm hearts care.

  4. Tell your critics to flak off!
