Make a Call That Saves Lives

What is Operation Red Nose?

Operation Red Nose is a safe ride service available during the month of December. The service started in 1984 and is available in over 100 communities across Canada—including Chilliwack!

How does it work?

A quick phone call puts you in touch with a team of volunteers who will drive you home safely in your own vehicle.

 

Drivers who use Operation Red Nose can make a donation to help cover the costs of the program and help support Chilliwack Restorative Justice.

Volunteer with Operation Red Nose.

Let's Keep Our Roads Safe This Holiday Season.

Volunteers start each night at our headquarters at the Griffin Security Office, 9300 Nowell Street, where we provide training and food. About 10 to 20 teams will be on call from 8:30 pm to 3:00 am every Friday and Saturday night from November 24 to December 31 (Except December 29 and 30).

Bring a couple of friends to volunteer as a driver team!

Volunteering with Operation Red Nose helps keep our roads safe and raises funds for Chilliwack Restorative Justice!
