We need your help this meaningful cause running up until December 1st! Join us to meet and exceed our goal!
The Greater Vancouver Home Builders Association (GVHBA) is launching its 22nd annual Coats for Kids campaign in support of the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau and Surrey Christmas Bureau, two groups whose many initiatives help to provide a brighter Christmas for families in need.
The Coats for Kids donation campaign runs from November 14th to December 1st. TQ Construction will be providing 2 drop-off locations for new and gently used coats, scarves, gloves and blankets. The greatest need is coats and jackets for tweens and teens ages 12 to 18 years old. While some teens fit adult sizing, we suggest coats that appeal to their age group — hooded coats are very popular! *Wink!*
New, unwrapped toys and gifts for children of all ages are also welcome and greatly appreciated! Art supplies, hockey sticks, soccer and basketballs are always a hit! Last year local residents donated more than 3,600 items, collected at 95 locations by 54 GVHBA member companies. We applaud the GVHBA for 22 years of continuous effort and dedication to this cause! Check out their Flickr album to see last year’s donation drop wrap-up party! Don’t miss this year’s wrap party on December 1st! We’ll be sponsoring a Gingerbread Decorating Station for kids! See our events page and RSVP today! Read more about this campaign in our monthly newsletter TQ Talk.
