106 communities from six Canadian provinces
For Maurice, the volunteer experience with Operation Red Nose rhymes with faithfulness. This year will be his 21st year of volunteering as an escort driver. For him, driving people home is of utmost importance! He does just that almost every night of the campaign with tremendous professionalism and contagious enthusiasm. Maurice has a charitable soul. He loves people and loves to help out and is very appreciated by his community. He has volunteered for various organizations since he was 15 yrs old, mostly for the less fortunate of his community. Each year, in December, he devotes his time to Operation Red Nose. To contribute to making his community’s roads safer brings him great satisfaction. This fits perfectly with his mentality and he finds the whole experience rewarding. Despite the occasional snow storm or other obstacle, Maurice is always ready to go. Over the years, he has gotten to know many volunteers, and many have become great friends. He loves the friendly atmosphere in the headquarters. From time to time, when things are not so busy, he helps in the kitchen. And when requests for rides start pouring in again, he goes back on the road, in search of new adventures, anecdotes, and beautiful human stories.
Thank-you Maurice for being part of the ORN tradition!
