City of Oshawa directs more than $2,200 from parking tickets to holiday toy drive's Profile



The City of Oshawa says it’s raised more than $2,200 through its annual Toys for Tickets campaign.

Drivers who got a parking ticket between November 17 and December 1 were given the chance to donate to the campaign instead of paying the city.

City staff say the money has been used to buy toys for Durham police’s food and toy drive.

“The Toys for Tickets campaign annually highlights the generosity of the Oshawa community,” said Oshawa Mayor Dan Carter in a statement Wednesday. “Especially this year, during a time that has been difficult for so many, those who are able to have given to those in need. It is this spirit of charity and benevolence that makes me so proud to be the mayor of this great city.”

“I would like to thank the Oshawa community for their participation in this year’s Toys for Tickets,” said Councillor Bradley Marks, Chair of the Corporate Services Committee. “Every year I am amazed by the kindness shown through this program. Donations received will transform the holidays for families in our community. Thank you for turning your parking ticket into a positive experience.”

“Thanks to all who participated!” said Councillor Jane Hurst, Vice-Chair of the Corporate Services Committee. “Your unintentional parking mistake has benefitted a local child – so you’re back on Santa’s ‘nice’ list!”
