Toys for Tickets

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

From November 1 to 30, The City of Red Deer typically allows toy donations 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, as a COVID-19 precaution, The City will make a financial donation directly to the Christmas Bureau rather than requiring ticket holders to purchase and drop off toy donations.

The amount of The City’s donation will be determined based on the total of early ticket payments for City of Red Deer parking tickets issued during November 2020, to a maximum of $6,300.

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, www.reddeerchristmasbureau.com.

How do I pay for my parking ticket?

Payments for City-issued parking tickets may be made online, in person or by mail. All options are described here: https://www.reddeer.ca/city-services/parking/received-a-ticket
