Chilliwack needs a new group to take over Operation Red Nose.

Chilliwack Restorative Justice & Youth Advocacy Association will no longer be hosting the seasonal road safety campaign, according to Operation Red Nose officials.

The local Restorative Justice group organized the popular service for the past eight years.

“The national office wishes to thank them for the incredible work they have done,” said spokesperson Aurélie Levy. “Operation Red Nose Chilliwack is part of a dynamic group, supported by local businesses and the service is now well known in the community.”

In 2011, a total of 702 rides were provided to motorists in the Chilliwack area.

“We encourage not for profit organizations who support local youth or amateur sport initiatives to contact us to become the next Operation Red Nose host organization in Chilliwack,” she said.

For any questions, information request or to apply to host ORN, please contact Marie-Chantal Fortin, National Development Coordinator at 1-800-463-7222 or by email at before May 31.
