Through Wednesday, Dec. 14, SMU faculty, staff and students may pay off parking tickets with new, non-violent, unwrapped toys of a value equal to or greater than the cost of the tickets. The toys will be donated to SMU’s United Way Partner, Children’s Medical Center.

The program applies only to unpaid SMU parking tickets issued for unauthorized parking, parking without a permit, over-time parking or improper display of a permit.

To participate, bring your parking tickets and a receipt for the toys to the Park ’N Pony office, Suite 101, Expressway Tower between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
