Annual Blanket Drive (Day 1)

Screen Shot 2018-11-25 at 4.22.43 PM.png

Event Details

Every year, in mid-December, we host a blanket and warm clothing drive, to fundraise, but more importantly, to create an opportunity for people from different backgrounds to come together in the spirit of learning and sharing. 

We want to break down the hierarchy between donor and donee through a more human way of engaging with the residents of the Down Town East Side – each package we personally hand out is personalized with a message focused on starting dialogues – to begin bridging stigmatized social gaps and invoke a sense of responsibility to our community and each other.

When: This year, we will be holding two opportunities for you to join us with two separate event days! – Sat, Dec 15th and Sun, Dec 16th

Where: UBC Learning Exchange

Get Involved!

We’re currently accepting blankets and warm clothing until December 12th! To donate, please contact ignitethewarmth@gmail.com. We also accept monetary donations here – all proceeds will go directly to purchasing new blankets.

Another great way to get involved is to start your own blanket drive with the help of our Ignite the Warmth Blanket Drive Package. This package contains information about how to run your own blanket drives as well as information about our organization and past events.

If this event interests you, please email volunteer.ignitethewarmth@gmail.com! (limited volunteer spots left!)
