BOSTON (CBS) – Instead of paying cash to settle a parking ticket, the city of Boston will accept toys.
Between now and Saturday, December 17th, you can give a new, unwrapped toy to resolve your ticket.
Three different sites have been established for drivers to drop off toys:
- Saturday, December 10, from 10 AM to 2 PM, from the Boston Transportation Department’s Mobile Command Center which will be parked at Faneuil Hall, adjacent to the Samuel Adams Statue.
- On Saturday, December 17, from 10 AM to 2 PM, from the Boston Transportation Department’s Mobile Command Center which will be parked in front of the CVS at #587 Boylston Street, between Dartmouth and Clarendon Streets.
- Thursday, December 8, through Friday, December 16, from 9 AM to 4 PM, in front of the Office of the Parking Clerk, room 224, Boston City Hall.
The names of all who participate in this year’s Toys for Tickets Campaign will be automatically entered into a raffle for one of two $25 Boston Meter Cards. The new Meter Cards, which are being sold at a 20% discount through December 31, will be available for purchase at all three locations.
Last year’s Toys for Tickets Campaign raised over $3,000 in toys to brighten the holidays for local, needy children.
