For the second straight holiday season, Operation Red Nose is putting the brakes on its program in Manitoba.
The organization says the COVID-19 situation is still too unpredictable at this point.
“The safety of our volunteers and clients is our priority, so the hard choice to push our safe ride campaign to 2022 is ultimately the most reasonable one given the current health situation.” Anne-Marie Audet, Executive Director at Operation Red Nose Canada said.
“We have put a lot of thought into our decision, and it was a very hard one to make.”
Operation Red Nose provides a free ride service for those who are impaired, while making sure their vehicles gets home safely as well. The volunteer-run service is free but donations go to support a variety of organizations in the province.
