Operation Red Nose (ORN) is a national road safety campaign aimed at reducing impaired driving during the holiday season. It allows people to drink responsibly and get home safely.
How the service works
For the 2017 holiday season, the ORN service will operate on select dates between Nov. 24 and Dec. 31. Check operationrednose.com or the new mobile app for operating hours and the schedule in your area. 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 - coordinated through the local Rotary Club - will pick you up and drive you, in your own vehicle, to the destination of your choice. 1 volunteer drives your vehicle, a 2nd volunteer navigates and a 3rd volunteer follows in an escort vehicle to pick up the 2 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 local youth or amateur sports organizations where the program is held.
