Since 1984, more than 1.1 million Canadians were volunteers with Operation Red Nose
The 2016 campaign is drawing to a close and with the New Year celebrations intensifying in the coming days, Operation Red Nose’s phone operators will be very busy in the next few days. The organization wishes to remind Canadians that the service’s effectiveness depends on community participation. The population is thus invited to volunteer, for one or more evenings, with their local host organization.
The red vest, one of the best holiday outfits for the past 33 years
Whether it is to celebrate the holiday season differently with colleagues, family or friends, or to meet new people, it's not too late to volunteer with Operation Red Nose, on the road or in local headquarters. Those interested can fill out an application form available at OperationRednose.com and send it to their local host organization.
Experiencing Operation Red Nose means to join thousands of volunteers in Canada, who have taken part in making their communities’ roads safer since November 25th, helping their fellow citizens get home safe for the holidays. It also means supporting local not-for-profit organizations working with youth and/or amateur sport. Although the service is offered free of charge, generous donations from service users consistently reach an annual 1.5 million dollars, funds that go on to finance a variety of local project.
