Operation Red Nose (ORN) in Abbotsford-Mission holds a campaign launch on Saturday, Nov. 18.
The event runs from 1 to 2 p.m. at Magnuson Ford (32562 South Fraser Way) and includes a contest open to the public.
Individuals are invited to pick up an ORN volunteer application form during that time for a chance to win a $100 Visa gift card.
The event also includes treats and hot beverages.
ORN runs from Nov. 24 to Dec. 31, offering motorists a safe ride home while raising money for local organizations.
Individuals can contact ORN during the nights of service – Nov. 24-25, Dec. 1-2, 8-9, 15-16 and New Year’s Eve – between 9 p.m. and 3 a.m., and a team of three volunteers will get them home safely.
One volunteer drives the caller’s vehicle, a second volunteer navigates and the third follows in an escort car to pick up the two volunteers once they drop off the individual(s).
The program in Abbotsford-Mission is co-ordinated by Pacific Sport Fraser Valley.
Those interested in volunteering can obtain an application form online at pacificsportfraservalley.com/orn.
Once the service is operating, calls for pickup can be placed at 604-864-4814 on the night needed.
The service is free, but donations are accepted for non-profit youth and amateur sports organizations.
