Coats For Kids

Coats For Kids - Warming Hearts Since 1995

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders Association (GVHBA) 21st annual Coats for Kids campaign collected over 4,200 items 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 GVHBA asked members to join together and drop off collected items from staff and community members on December 1st, at Caesarstone Canada, for one gigantic donation.

Chris Bayliss, of the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau came with his ¾ tonne truck, which was filled in no-time. GVHBA member Phil Crawford, driver for Port Coquitlam Building Supplies Ltd. stepped up and volunteered his trailer-bed truck to carry the overflow, and was immediately nominated to head elf to a round of cheers!

Bob de Wit, CEO, GVHBA said “collectively GVHBA can make a difference, and we wanted to amplify this message to our members with one gigantic donation. Whether a member arrived with one coat or 100, everyone was welcomed with a warm breakfast, and shared in the campaign’s success. It truly was impactful to see the donations pouring in. Even after the trucks were loaded members kept arriving. It is obvious, next year we will have to extend this event."  

Thank you to our media partners: Black Press, Glacier Media, REW.ca and Pacific Newspaper Group for sharing this time-honoured, Metro Vancouver-wide, heart-warming tradition.
