Alberta Health Services (AHS) says the “Toys for Tickets” campaign is back where people can write their tickets off by donating a new, unwrapped toy for tickets issued between Nov. 6 and Dec. 15, 2023.
“Last year was a huge success as we collected more than 470 toys province wide,” said Nick Ternovatsky, director of parking, AHS. “Given its past success and positive reception, we are happy to launch it once again this holiday season.”
Toys can be dropped at any at any AHS parking office until Dec. 15. Each toy must have a value of at least $25 and be for ages newborn to 17 years.
