Operation Red Nose is a designated driving campaign where a team of 3 volunteers drive you AND your vehicle home during the holiday season. Operation Red Nose is hosted by PacificSport Interior BC in conjunction with ICBC, CFJC-TV7, 98.3 CIFM, B-100 and the RCMP.
The service is by donation and is available to any person operating a motor vehicle who does not wish to drive their car for any reason. A person does not have to be drinking to use the service. Operation Red Nose is not a taxi service and is only available to drive people AND their vehicles home. The campaign relies soley on volunteers to keep the streets safe during the holiday season.
The donations raised from the campaign go to PacificSport Interior BC. All proceeds will go toward developing services and programs for amateur sport in the Kamloops region.
