Impark is offering to waive unpaid parking tickets for anyone in Vancouver who donates a toy to the Salvation Army — but only for four hours on Thursday morning.

The toy drive will take place from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. PT at the Salvation Army Belkin House at 555 Homer Street in Vancouver.

"A single toy donated will waive a single unpaid violation notice," according to a release from the company.

The toys must be new and unwrapped, and should be of "equal value" to the parking ticket, says Impark. It's not clear how the toys' value will be assessed.

Parking scofflaws must also bring a copy of their violation notice, statement, or license plate number to get credit for the contribution.

The toys will be distributed to families in need.

Impark is suggesting puzzles, books, gift cards, sports equipment and Lego, and notes that presents for teens are "particularly appreciated."
