Alberta Health Services (AHS) thanks everyone who donated to the Toys for Tickets campaign. The campaign which ended on Friday, Dec. 16, gave people who received an AHS parking ticket an opportunity to donate a new, unwrapped toy rather than paying their fine. 

“It was great to see the outpouring of generosity and donations from everyone who donated in Grande Prairie,” says Sergio Roppo, Manager Parking Operations, North Sector, AHS. “It certainly helped put a smile on our parking staff faces and hopefully will do the same for the dozens of children who will receive a toy over the holiday season.”   

Close to a dozen toys were collected and will be distributed by the Grande Prairie Regional Health Foundation to children staying at the hospital.
