REGINA – Operation Red Nose is getting set to ensure you get a safe ride home after your holiday party for its sixth year in Saskatchewan.

Starting on November 28th and running up to New Year’s Eve, Operation Red Nose encourages motorists who had one too many drinks to call – a team of three volunteers will be dispatched to your location to make sure you and your vehicle gets home safely.

The service will be offered in Regina, Saskatoon, The Battlefords and Prince Albert. The service is run by volunteers and by donation. All the money collected is turned over to local youth and amateur sports organizations.

“You can’t count on Santa’s magic sleigh to get you home after you’ve been drinking. But you can count on Operation Red Nose,” said Minister Responsible for SGI Don McMorris.

“SGI is committed to helping Saskatchewan residents plan a safe ride home, and we’re proud to continue our sponsorship for Operation Red Nose in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert and The Battlefords. We encourage more communities to join in.”

Operation Red Nose is in 99 communities across seven provinces and since 1984 have taken over 1.9 million people home.

Each year, Operation Red Nose contributes nearly $1.5 million to youth initiatives from coast to coast.
