The City of Fort St. John is launching Toys for Tickets on December 1, which will run until noon of December 17.

Drivers can give a new, packaged and unwrapped toy/gift card/cash donation in lieu of paying a traffic violation ticket. Toys received are donated to the Salvation Army for distribution to the less fortunate in the community.

The tickets returned can’t be older than September 1 of this year.

The City says this date was chosen to avoid conflict with tickets that are currently in or being placed into collections.

Bylaw Enforcement will attach a sticker to meter violation tickets for the duration of Toys for Tickets.

Launched in 2005, the City says the program has received ‘tremendous’ support in it’s 10 years of operation.
