Our Mission

Gregory Ould and his son, Co-Founders of Blanket BC Society officially started their Annual Winter Blanket Drive in 2006 collecting nearly 2000 blankets. The duo collect blankets from any person or company that wishes to donate blankets for those less fortunate. All blankets are divided up and distributed to shelters, churches and other organizations that are seeking these items. Blanket BC is also raising awareness to the homelessness plight that is ravaging our communities. Prevention is key. Until there is someone in need, Blanket BC will be there to support those who are hands on with these harsh issues.

Under the Cover: The story beneath the blanket

While walking out of a movie theatre in downtown Vancouver on a chilly October night, Gregory noticed a man lying in an alcove at the side of a building. Always so curious, Greg went up to the man, whose appearance looked that of 60 years old, he asked the man if there was anything that he could do to help him out. Thinking he would ask for food or drink, cigarettes or coffee, Gregory wasn’t prepared for what the man said. “I could use a blanket…to survive the night.” Blown away by those words, Greg went out and brought back a blanket. The act of that one offer has now continued and blossomed to a family endeavor to assist charity organizations like SHARE from the Tri-Cities, or the Union Gospel Mission’s shelters or any other Churches that open their space to the homeless and families in need of help.
