The Christmas season can be a little too jolly for some revelers.
This is where Operation Red Nose comes in.
The designated driver program offers safe rides home for those who have had too much to drink on weekends in late November and through most of December.
In Langley, the program runs Friday and Saturday nights: Nov. 28-29, and Dec. 5-6, 12-13, and 19-20.
The service is also provided on New Yearâ€™s Eve, Wednesday, Dec. 31.
For those needing a ride home during those days, the B.C. hotline is 1-877-604-NOSE (6673).
This yearâ€™s campaign theme, â€œThis Season, Hand the Reins Over to Usâ€ encourages motorists who had one too many, who are tired, or who are simply not able to drive their vehicles to call Operation Red Nose.
A team of three volunteers will be dispatched and the motorist will be safely driven home in his or her own vehicle.
The service is by donation and 100 per cent of the funds raised are turned over to local youth and amateur sports organizations.
Each year, Operation Red Nose clients contribute $1.5 million to youth initiatives, from coast to coast.
For people who want to provide safe rides, volunteer applications can be found at the Langley Gymnastics Foundation located at the Langley Events Centre or at www.rednose.bc.ca.
Forms can be picked up and dropped off at the LGF gym, Box 180, 7888 200th St.
