Be generous. Be inspired. Be giving. Be Boulder.Do you have outstanding parking citations? Are you looking for an easy way to pay them off and help your community at the same time? CU Boulder Parking and Transportation Services is offering a win-win solution.

On Nov. 14, 15, 17 and 18, Parking Services will allow you to pay off your campus parking fines with canned food instead of cash as part of a community food drive effort with Harvest of Hope Pantry, who provides healthy supplemental food to Boulder families and individuals in need.

Between 1 and 4 p.m. on the dates noted above, bring in a minimum of four non-perishable food items to the Parking Services lobby and have a current outstanding citation waived.*

If you have more than one outstanding citation, you are welcome to donate more than the minimum required. Donations also will be accepted from those who do not have any fines.

For more information on acceptable food items, please review the official event flyer.

*Citations must have an issuance date prior to Nov. 1, 2016. Donations will not be valid for citations in collections, at the Bursar's Office, relocated/booted vehicles, ADA or fire lane/undesignated space violations or any amount due over $50.
