Operation Red Nose

Operation Red Nose is a unique program against drinking and driving. Essentially, it is a volunteer safe ride home service provided during the Holiday Season to all motorists who have been drinking or who do not feel fit to drive their own vehicle. It is an original and free way of getting a safe ride in ones own vehicle without driving it – and it is absolutely free! The Greater Saint John service will be available to residents from Grand Bay-Westfield to Quispamsis, Friday and Saturday nights during the holidays: Nov 27, 28, Dec 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 26, plus Dec 31st! Our teams of volunteers consist of three people who will pick you up and drive you home in your own car. The service is free, however if you feel you would like to make a donation, all proceeds from this service go directly to a local youth sporting organisation (last year we were able to donate $3300 to P.R.O. Kids – many thanks to our clients in 2008!). So call (506) 693-6810 between 9pm and 3am on the dates above and we will pick you up. Since 1984, Operation Red Noses mission has been to encourage responsible behaviour with regard to impaired driving in a non-judgemental manner by enabling communities to provide a free and confidential chauffeur service to their members, the financial benefits of which are redistributed to local organizations dedicated to youth.
