MIT Toys for Tickets returns

If you happen to have received that unwanted MIT parking ticket this past year, the MIT Parking and Transportation Office will once again sponsor a “Toys for Tickets” program to help you get rid of it.

Instead of paying the fine on an outstanding MIT parking violation, the parking office will accept new, unopened toys to settle the ticket. Just bring in the parking violation along with the cash register receipt to the parking office before Monday, Dec. 12. The value of the toy or game must be of equal or greater value than the parking violation.

This program is open to anyone who has an outstanding MIT parking ticket. The Parking Office is located in the basement of the Student Center, W20-022.

We are also collecting new, non-violent, unwrapped toys and new warm clothing for those much less fortunate again this year. Toys and clothing can be dropped off at MIT Medical, E23-205, Center for Health Promotion and Wellness, or the MIT Police Station at W89, 301 Vassar Street, there is parking available for dropping off toys, and short business). All gifts will be distributed to the needy families who live in the neighborhoods abutting the MIT campus.
