Innisfil, ON - The Town of Innisfil is excited to announce the return of its "Scrooge the Ticket" campaign for the ninth year. This unique initiative allows residents to transform their parking tickets into acts of kindness and support for the community. From November 13 to 27, anyone who receives an Innisfil parking ticket will have the option to donate money, children’s toys, gift cards, or non-perishable food items to charity instead of paying their fine.

The Scrooge the Ticket campaign aims to create a positive impact during the holiday season by encouraging residents to embrace the spirit of giving and help those in need. This year, monetary donations collected through eligible tickets paid online will be split evenly between the Innisfil Food Bank and the Troy Scott Community Fridges. The Innisfil Food Bank will also receive all donated items for distribution to families by the Innisfil Community Church.

“Since its inception, the Scrooge the Ticket Campaign has collected nearly $30,000 in toys, cash, and food to help ensure that no Innisfil resident goes without,” says Mayor Lynn Dollin. “The initiative turns what could be seen as an inconvenience into a purposeful act of generosity that will benefit someone in our community. It’s an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others, at a time of year that we know is difficult for many.”

Participants who choose to contribute their penalty amount to the campaign can do so by making a payment through the Town’s online system at Alternatively, those donating items are asked to bring them to Innisfil Town Hall (2101 Innisfil Beach Rd) no later than Monday, November 27. Donated items must be equal to or greater in value than the penalty amount, and a receipt of purchase for the item(s) must be presented.

Innisfil Town Hall is open Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information on the campaign, visit
