Toys for Tickets Returns!

Posted November 18, 2019, by Lauren Fisher

Campus Services is teaming up with The Elf Louise Christmas Project and UTSA VOICES to deliver holiday cheer! Toys for Tickets is an opportunity for the UTSA community to donate new, non-violent toys valued at a minimum of $5 or more in exchange for 50% off one outstanding eligible parking citation. Valid for citations up to $100 original value.

Give Back to the Community

At the end of the campaign, Campus Services delivers all donations to The Elf Louise Christmas Project for distribution to families in the greater San Antonio area. The Elf Louise Christmas Project is a grassroots organization run entirely by volunteers and has been dedicated to giving back to the community since 1969. Since its inception, the organization has delivered over 1 million toys to children in the greater San Antonio area. 

Spread Holiday Cheer

A large number of toys stacked on top of each other.

Last year, the campus community donated 172 toys and saved over $4,000 in citation fees. Save money on a citation while also helping spread some holiday cheer! Toys for Tickets is a chance for customers to help those in need while also learning more about how to avoid future citations. 

Donations without Citations Encouraged

In the spirit of the holiday season, we encourage donations without citations! To participate in the campaign, bring your toy to Campus Services in the Multidisciplinary Studies Building (MS 1.01.52) at the Main Campus or in the Frio Street Building (FS 2.418) at the Downtown Campus.
