Operation Red Nose is back for their 11th year in Fort Saskatchewan.
 
Throughout the holiday season, Operation Red Nose volunteers will be giving party-goers a ride home for themselves and their vehicle.
 
During any of the nights you can call for a ride, but you can't schedule in advance.
 
"It's nice to know if there's going to be a lot of parties so we can bring in extra teams," said Stew Hennig, the Operation Red Nose program chair. "If you want a ride at midnight and you phone at 11:30 that's good, but if you phone at 9:00, you're going to have to phone again closer to midnight."
 
All rides have to either start or end in Fort Saskatchewan, donations support local youth and sports groups.
 
"Some folks are really appreciative and want to donate so they'll give over a hundred dollars," said Hennig. "Occasionally people will get a ride home and have nothing. The ride is there to get you home safe and sound."
 
If you would like a ride, call 780-999-7567.
 
Operation Red Nose runs November 24, 25, December 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30, 31 from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.
 
If you would like to volunteer, contact the Fort Saskatchewan Rotary Club at [email protected] or call the number above,
