Operation Red Nose looking for volunteers

November 10, 2014 - 1:54 PM

Kamloops – The holiday season is fast approaching, which means it’s time for Operation Red Nose! PacificSport is hosting their 18th annual campaign of Operation Red Nose. The dates of operation are Nov. 28, 29, Dec. 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27 and 31. The service is by donation and confidential and is available to any person operating a motor vehicle who does not wish to drive their car for any reason. A person does not have to be drinking to use the service.

Operation Red Nose relies solely on volunteers who care about their community and want to help and have a little fun during the holiday season. This year Operation Red Nose hopes to recruit 250 volunteers for this year’s campaign. Volunteer positions include Designated Drivers, Escort Drivers, Navigators, Phone Operators and Dispatchers. Volunteers can team up with their friends, family or coworkers to form a road team of three and help safely drive home clients and their vehicles.

If you are interested in volunteering please contact Katie Klassen at 250-320-0650 or email at kklassen@pacificsport.com. Volunteer application forms are located at the Tournament Capital Centre, RCMP Detachment on Battle Street or Volunteer Kamloops. Please drop off completed forms at the RCMP detachment and bring two pieces of photo ID.
