Toys for Tickets 

Holiday Hero's logo

Aurora Bylaw Services has partnered with York Regional Police for their annual Toys for Tickets campaign. In the spirit of the holiday season, parking tickets issued from November 15 to December 13 can be paid for by donating a new, unwrapped toy or food donation of equal or greater value to the penalty of your parking ticket. All toys, food donations and gift cards will be collected for York Regional Police’s Holiday Heroes campaign. Donations support children and families in need throughout Aurora and Newmarket.

The program excludes offences for “parking in a fire route,” “parking in an accessible parking space” and “obstructing an accessible parking space”.

Criteria

The value of the donation must be equal to or exceed the amount owing on the parking ticket. Toy(s) must be new, unwrapped and in their original packaging. Donations of more than one toy will be accepted. Cash will not be accepted.

Donations that total the early infraction payment will be accepted only within the early payment period. If your donation is less than the value of the ticket, you are required to pay the remaining balance.

Include your Receipt: Donations must be accompanied by original receipts. No photocopied or emailed receipts will be accepted.

Drop-Off

Donations will be accepted at Aurora Town Hall, Access Aurora, 1st floor, 100 John West Way. Donations will not be accepted after Monday, December 13, 2021.
