Ope­ra­tion Nez Rouge ready for fes­tive season

Vo­lun­teer drivers nee­ded

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

For the 29th year in a row, Ope­ra­tion Nez Rouge will do its part to make sure people do not drink and drive this ho­li­day season.

From No­vem­ber 30th to De­cem­ber 31st, 2012, red vest clad vo­lun­teers will of­fer to do the dri­ving for par­ty goers who want to im­bibe some ho­li­day spi­rits. The theme of this year’s ef­fort is tit­led: Let Ru­dy Take the Wheel. Nez Rouge says its goal is to pro­vide Ca­na­dians who feel un­fit to drive with a safe al­ter­na­tive to get back home. The ef­fort will take place in 110 com­mu­ni­ties across Ca­na­da, in­clu­ding Vau­dreuil-Do­rion, where the Nez Rouge head­quar­ters will be set up at the L’Ac­tuel vo­lun­teer centre.

Vo­lun­teers nee­ded

And Nez Rouge or­ga­ni­zers are al­ways loo­king for vo­lun­teers willing to give their time, whe­ther for a few hours or se­ve­ral eve­nings. The group says vo­lun­teers make a si­gni­fi­cant contri­bu­tion to help im­prove road sa­fe­ty in the com­mu­ni­ty while sup­por­ting youth and ama­teur sports. Vo­lun­teers must fill out an ap­pli­ca­tion form and un­der­go a scree­ning pro­cess. Vo­lun­teer drivers work in teams. To fill out a vo­lun­teer form, go to the Nez Rouge web­site at http://ope­ra­tion­nez­rouge.com, or go to the Vau­dreuil-Do­rion Head­quar­ters lo­ca­ted at the Centre d’ac­tion bé­né­vole L’Ac­tuel, 88 rue Adèle in Vau­dreuil-Do­rion. The lo­cal ef­fort can be rea­ched by cal­ling 450 455-3331. To call for a ride in the re­gion as of Nov. 30th, dial 450 424-4011 or 1-866-Des­jar­dins.
