Donations will be accepted until December 23rd.

Instead of paying your ticket, help your community by donating any of the following items or group of items, and we will dismiss your citations, up to $100 per donation:

In order to have a citation dismissed, participants must bring in new items that are similar in price to the issued citation. 

For example, if a parking prohibited ticket is worth $25, participants should donate an item of equal value, like a pair of children’s snow boots.

All donations will benefit Horizons, the Willis Dady Shelter, and Waypoint. 

Participants can bring their donations to the Park Cedar Rapids office located in the 4th Avenue parking ramp at:

349 4th Avenue SE
