Innisfil, ON - The Town of Innisfil is bringing back its “Scrooge the Ticket” campaign for the eighth year in a row. From November 14 through November 28, 2022, anyone who receives a parking fine in the Town of Innisfil has the option of donating children’s toys, gift cards or non-perishable food items instead of paying their ticket. All donations collected by the Scrooge the Ticket campaign (including eligible tickets paid online) will be provided to the Innisfil Food Bank, an outreach program of the Innisfil Community Church.

Since its inception, the Scrooge the Ticket Campaign has collected and donated nearly $24,000 in toys, cash, and food to Innisfil residents in need.

“Our residents truly love this initiative, and we are so happy to be offering it again,” says Innisfil Mayor Lynn Dollin. “We know that no one enjoys receiving a parking ticket, but our residents certainly brighten up when they find out they have the opportunity to donate to a great cause during the festive season.”

Participants who choose to donate are asked to bring their items to Innisfil Town Hall (2101 Innisfil Beach Rd.) no later than Monday, November 28, 2022. The donated items must be equal to or greater than the value of the parking fine and a receipt of purchase for the item(s) must be presented.

Innisfil Town Hall is open Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, visit the Town's website
