Garry first brought Operation Red Nose to Langley-Surrey in 1999 and he has taken on many responsibilities since. He spends endless hours volunteering before and during the campaign. Before: he goes out and gets sponsors; helps organize volunteers and getting the word out to everyone. During the campaign he takes the mascot around to Christmas parties, banquet halls, bars, and hands out ORN business cards. He also helps with dispatch, call taking, driving, and making sure everyone gets home safely.
He is out helping every night of the campaign doing various jobs, as well as before and after the campaign.
Garry always brings the fun component, which makes people want to continue volunteering year after year, and bring their friends along.
Garry's main focus with Operation Red nose is making sure that everyone gets home safe.
Garry is one of our most dedicated volunteers who has helped Operation Red Nose grow tremendously over the years. We really depend on volunteers like him to take charge and go above and beyond what could be done.
Thank-you Garry for being part of the ORN tradition!
