Donate Toys for Your Ticket
The Penhold Community Peace Officers are once again running the Toys for Tickets program. If you receive a ticket for specific violations in Penhold during the month of November, you can donate toys instead of paying your fine. All toys will be donated to the Red Deer Christmas Bureau to help ensure no child wakes up without a toy on Christmas morning.
How it works: Toys can be dropped off at the Town Office until Dec. 15 and the purchase price paid must be equal to AT LEAST 80% of the value on your violation ticket. Toys must be new and in original packaging, and ticket holders must provide an original receipt showing the value of the toy. Gift cards are accepted (i.e. ToysRUs, Walmart, etc.) but war toys (guns, knives etc.) cannot be donated in lieu of ticket payment.
The toys will be donated to the Red Deer Christmas Bureau who will distribute the toys to families in need, including Penhold families.
Making a list, checking it twice: Each year, the Christmas Bureau provides a list of popular items on Christmas lists. For a list of popular items for each age group, check the Red Deer Christmas Bureau’s Toy List. When shopping, consider supporting one of our many amazing local Penhold businesses!
For families in need: If you or someone you know is concerned about finances and could use a little help this holiday season, the Red Deer Christmas Bureau may be able to help. Visit their website to see program requirements and to apply for assistance.
