The City of Sault Ste. Marie is pleased to announce the return of the annual Toys for Tickets campaign. From November 1 to December 1, 2023, anyone who receives a parking ticket can pay the fine amount by donating a new children’s toy of equal or greater value to support the community’s Christmas Cheer efforts.
“The Toys for Tickets program highlights our community’s generosity. Individuals often spend more than the required fine amount in the form of a newly purchased toy which in turn helps support families in need. We are happy to support this initiative in Sault Ste. Marie,” says Brent Lamming, Director of Community Services.
To donate, every person who receives a parking ticket during the month of November, excluding accessible parking fines can bring their parking ticket with an unwrapped toy in its original packaging and proof of purchase to the Transit main office at 111 Huron Street in Sault Ste. Marie. Donations of more than one toy are accepted if the value of the toy equals or exceeds the amount owing on the fine. Partial payments in the form of a toy and the remainder in monetary funds are not accepted. Gift cards will not be accepted. Toys must be provided to Transit by December 8, 2023, to qualify. All toys will be included as part of the community’s Christmas Cheer efforts.
