Toys for Tickets

Toys for Tickets, The City’s annual donation collection program that supports the Red Deer Christmas Bureau, has been changed for 2020, in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Toys for Tickets 2020

The program, which typically runs from November 1 to 30, allows toy donations (of equal or greater value) in lieu of parking ticket payments. All gifts received through the program are donated to the Christmas Bureau to help achieve the goal of ensuring no child in Red Deer wakes up without a toy on Christmas morning.

This year, rather than encourage ticket holders to shop for a new toy then visit City Hall to deliver their donation, The City will make a financial donation directly to the Christmas Bureau. The amount of the donation will be determined based on the total of early ticket payments for City of Red Deer parking tickets issued during November 2020.

Red Deerians who wish to support the Red Deer Christmas Bureau directly can contact the organization for donation options. Contact information is available on the organization’s website,
