The 24th Annual Coats For Kids

November 11 – December 6, 2019

“Warming Hearts Since 1995”

The Homebuilders Association Vancouver (HAVAN) will kick off the 24th annual Coats for Kids campaign on November 11 in support of the Lower Mainland and Surrey Christmas Bureaus; two groups whose many initiatives help to provide a brighter Christmas for families in need.

Last year the response was truly heartwarming with Metro Vancouver residents donating more than 6,000 items to 54 HAVAN member companies, who opened 67 drop-off locations in 16 municipalities across Metro Vancouver.

To help amplify this great initiative, everyone will gather for HAVAN’s Wrap-Up Party, co-hosted by Trail Appliances and Caesarstone Canada to present ONE GIGANTIC heartwarming donation to the Lower Mainland and Surrey Christmas Bureaus on Friday, December 6, 2019. Everyone is welcome to attend! Guests will be treated warm eats, and sweet treats, choir music, hot cocoa, the Grinch, Cindy Loo Who, Max, and the Gingerman too! Santa will be onsite too, for photo opps! Bring your whole team and share in the gift of giving.
