GVHBA’s 23rd Annual Coats for Kids Campaign

The association is working hard to break its 2017 all time record of collecting 6,500 coats – can you help?

THE Greater Vancouver Homebuilders’ Association (GVHBA) members are once again opening their doors to provide drop-off locations for people to donate lightly used and new coats, plus new toys in support of the Lower Mainland and Surrey Christmas Bureaus, serving families in need.

Running from November 1 through November 30, 47 GVHBA member companies are offering 56 drop-off locations across 14 municipalities, making it easy to participate in this heart-warming event.

Surrey Christmas Bureau Executive Director Lisa Werring said, “We are always looking to provide clothing and toys for teens and pre-teens, noting grooming supplies, hair products and appliances are always popular with both the boys and the girls.”

Chris Bayless at the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau emphasized the needs are real, and clothing is often overlooked. “People think of toys and food around this time of year, but keeping kids warm is an essential need for every parent too; especially during the colder winter months,” he said. “Watching the relief on a parent’s face who finds a size-appropriate coat for their child is a good feeling.”

Coats for teens are always in high demand. Even though some teens fit adult sizing, the coats need to appeal their age group – hoodies are always a popular choice.
