Operation Red Nose
If you’re out tonight and need a safe ride home, call the volunteers at Operation Red Nose Tri-Cities — an organization that supports KidSport Tri-Cities to help families register their children in sports. A driver and navigator will drive you home in your own vehicle while an escort driver in another car follows behind to collect the volunteers afterward. The hours of operation are 9 a.m. to 3 a.m.
