Program Runs From May 1 Through June 16, 2023

    Parking tickets issued between May 1, and June 16, 2023, may be paid with donations of school supplies. Any supplies taken in by the city through the program will be donated to the Teachers Exchange, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that is associated with the Public Education Foundation.

     Those who have a parking infraction in the city of Las Vegas between May 1 and June 16 may satisfy their tickets by bringing new, unwrapped school supplies of equal or greater value to their fine to the Parking Services Offices at 350 S. City Parkway. This must be done within 30 days of the citation date and a purchase receipt for the donation is required.

     In July of 2016, the City Council adopted an ordinance authorizing the establishment of this occasional program allowing for charitable donations in lieu of payment for parking fines.
