Operation Red Nose will have 18 road teams out tonight and another 21 out on Saturday night between 9 p.m. – 3 a.m.
The number people can call is 250-962-7433.
The most urgent matter though is the organization only has 26 teams lined up for New Year’s Eve so far. That is not enough to deal with the demand as they expect to give more than 200 rides.
They would love to have at least 35 to 40 teams ring in the new year with us. That equals 45 more volunteers.
The deadline to apply to volunteer for New Year’s Eve is Monday, Dec. 19. The applications must be dropped off to the downtown RCMP detachment by the end of their business hours to give them enough time to process them in time.
Applications can be found online at www.ornpg.ca
They must be 19 years old, have a valid driver’s license and pass a criminal record check which is part of the application.
They have enough teams for Dec. 30. The volunteer count sits at 238.
