After being parked last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Operation Red Nose will be back on Kamloops streets this Christmas season.
The safe ride home service will again partner with PacificSport Interior BC to operate the service from Nov. 26 through New Year’s Eve.
Operation Red Nose has volunteers take calls and drive callers’ vehicles home, followed bay a pilot vehicle driven by another Red Nose volunteer.
The service is offered by donation, with proceeds going to PacificSport Interior BC, which helps amateur athletes.
The service will be operated under COVID-19 health orders and guidelines, with more details to be released at the campaign launch in November.
“The Red Nose family shows its determination and great capacity to adapt to new situations,” said Anne-Marie Audet, executive director at the national Operation Red Nose office.
“We are happy to see how enthusiastic and ready the participating organizations are to make the upcoming season another successful one,”
ICBC is a provincial partner of Operation Red Nose, which has been running in Kamloops since 1997 and this year is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
