News release from the Town of Innisfil

The Town of Innisfil is proud to announce that this year’s “Scrooge the Ticket” campaign has raised approximately $5,000 in toys, non-perishable food items, gift cards and funds for the Innisfil Food Bank, a program run by the Innisfil Community Church.

Anyone who received a parking fine between November 14 and November 28 in Innisfil had the option of donating instead.

Innisfil Mayor Lynn Dollin was on hand at the Innisfil Community Church to help deliver the donations and expressed her gratitude to both the By-Law officers for their hard work, and the residents for supporting the program.

“To know that all these toys, goods and funds will go to help families have a brighter and happier Christmas is what this campaign is all about. It warms my heart to know that we can be part of making the holidays easier for those in need within our community,” says Mayor Lynn Dollin.

Since it began eight years ago, the “Scrooge the Ticket” campaign has raised approximately $29,000 in cash donations, new toys, and non-perishable food items to support the local community.
