Operation Red Nose Prince George will not provide its safe ride service during the 2020 holiday season.

The decision was made due to the pandemic.

“The safety of our volunteers, clients, and localhost organizations has always been one of our top priorities,” said Jean-Philippe Giroux, Executive Director for Operation Red Nose.

“The decision was made after long and careful consideration, and not without emotion. We remain convinced that positive initiatives will be possible this holiday season. In the meantime, we want to remind everyone to always plan ahead for a safe way to get home.”

Next month, the PG chapter will reveal the details of its awareness campaign, which will exclude the safe ride service.
