Nearly 220 toys will go to families in need, thanks to the City of Red Deer’s Toys for Tickets program.
The program gives people the chance to pay for parking tickets issued between Nov. 1 and 30 with toys. All 216 toys will go to the Red Deer Christmas Bureau.
A range of toys were donated, with a total value of $7,300, as part of the program’s 12th year. More than 6,000 toys, games, gift cards and other treats have been collected since the program started in 2007.
