Everyone Invited to “Scrooge the Ticket” for a Good Cause
Innisfil, ON – From Nov. 20, 2017 through until Dec. 11, 2017, 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 will be provided to the Innisfil Food Bank, an outreach program of the Innisfil Community Church.
“Our residents are absolutely in love with this initiative and we are proud to be taking the lead and offering it again,” said Innisfil Mayor Gord Wauchope. “No one likes receiving a parking ticket, but our residents certainly brighten up when 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, Dec. 4, 2017 by 4:30 p.m. The donated items must be equal to or greater than the value of the parking fine and a receipt must be presented. This marks the third year of the “Scrooge the Ticket” program.
