Published On: Dec 23 2012 07:27:10 PM CST

Designated Driver of Colorado Springs is looking for volunteer drivers for New Year's Eve. The group is looking for volunteer drivers. 

The program offers rides home to those who plan to drink this holiday. Volunteers work in teams of two to get drivers home safely.

"There's a huge need. We've given over 13,000 safe rides home in the community since 2009 and I'm anticipating New Year's Eve will be incredibly busy for us, " said Nonie Rispin who is coordinating this year's volunteers.

If you are interested in volunteering, please call Rispin at  719-447-7976.  

People who use their service this year will be able to get free pick-ups at local bars and restaurants sponsoring Designated Driver. You can also buy individual vouchers to be picked up at any location. For a list of sponsors visit
