Operation Red Nose Will Not Operate Its Safe Ride Service in Quinte for the 2021 Holiday Season

November 1, 2021
After careful consideration of the current public health situation and its logistical impact on the service, the Board of Directors of Operation Red Nose of Quinte has once again decided not to provide its famous safe ride service during the 2021 holiday season.

“The safety of our volunteers and clients is the number one priority,” said Rick Watt. “The decision was made after long and careful consideration, and not without emotion. We want to thank all of our volunteers and local partners who keep supporting their community year after year. We look forward to working with you again in 2022.”

“While we are making significant strides in getting past this pandemic, we still have to work to do, we must remain vigilant, take the necessary pre-cautions as a community and take the path that is safe for our volunteers and our clients” said David Allen, President and CEO of the Host Organization, the YMCA of Central East Ontario.

“Even in the absence of the safe ride service this year, we advise and remind everyone in our community to always plan for a safe way to get home by calling a friend, a relative, a cab, by designating a sober driver, or by staying overnight,” said Allen.
