THANK YOU to all who not only volunteered, but also to those who supported and sponsored our campaign and those who used the service and spread the word to your family and friends. This was a COMMUNITY effort and we truly couldn't have accomplished what we did without you! Well over 400 vehicles and their passengers home safely over the course of the eight campaign nights. A successful 2019 is in the books. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE... and stay tuned for details about next year! We will be looking for committee lead volunteers sooner than later!
WHAT IS OPERATION RED NOSE?
Operation Red Nose (ORN) is a 100% Volunteer operated FREE driving service that provides SAFE rides for clients, in their own vehicles, on specific nights during the Christmas Season. It allows people to share a little holiday cheer responsibly and get home safely. We are the Langley-Surrey campaign and are excited to be back! To arrange for a safe ride, please call 604-539-9082. Have questions? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
HOW DOES THE SERVICE WORK?
For the holiday season, the ORN service will operate on select nights:
- Friday November 29 & Saturday November 30, 2019 | 9pm - 3am
- Friday December 6 & Saturday December 7, 2019 | 9pm - 3am
- Friday December 13 & Saturday December 14, 2019 | 9pm - 3am
- Friday December 20 & Saturday December 21, 2019 | 9pm - 3am
- Tuesday December 31, 2019 | 9pm - 3am - CANCELLED
Then, if you need to get home safely after celebrating the holiday season with some drinks, call ORN for a FREE ride home. A team of 3 volunteers – co-ordinated through the Langley Minor Hockey Association - will pick you up and drive you, in your own vehicle to the destination of your choice (within the local campaign areas). One volunteer drives your vehicle, a second volunteer navigates and a third volunteer follows in an escort vehicle to pick up the volunteers once they drop you off.
The service is FREE but donations are accepted. ORN is a great fundraising opportunity with 100% of client donations going towards our local amateur hockey organizations, LMHA.
