“It’s the season for giving. This program gives residents an opportunity to give back to our community and spread some holiday cheer,” said Mayor Lori Ackerman. 

The Toys for Tickets campaign was launched in 2005, receiving support from the community each year. This is an opportunity for individuals to exchange parking meter violation tickets for toys that can be distributed throughout the community to those less fortunate.
