It was another busy weekend for Operation Red Nose volunteers in Langley.
Run by the Langley Gymnastics Foundation, ORN Langley-Surrey gave 192 safe rides home to people in the two communities: 91 on Friday, Dec. 12, and 101 more on Saturday, Dec. 13.
So far this year, 468 rides have been provided in Langley and Surrey since the Nov. 28-29 weekend.
ORN continues this weekend, Dec. 19-20, and wraps up on New Yearâ€™s Eve, Wednesday, Dec. 31.
This yearâ€™s campaign theme, â€œThis Season, Hand the Reins Over to Us,â€ encourages motorists who have had one too many, who are tired, or who are simply not able to drive their vehicles to call ORN.
A team of three volunteers will be dispatched, and the motorist will be safely driven home in his or her own vehicle.
One hundred per cent of the funds raised from ORN are turned over to local youth and amateur sports organizations.
Each year, Operation Red Nose clients contribute about $1.5 million to youth initiatives, coast to coast.
For the 16th year, Langley Gymnastics Foundation is hosting ORN for Langley and Surrey.
The service will be available locally from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. this Friday and Saturday. For anyone needing a ride on those days, the ORN number for Langley/Surrey is 604-532-0888.
