Corporate Press Release 22/11/2011

Imperial Parking Canada Corporation (“Impark”) announced today it is offering a one-day, 4 hour event during which anyone in Vancouver, Kamloops, Kelowna or Prince George who has an unpaid Impark parking violation notice can have it waived by making a toy donation to The Salvation Army.

On Thursday, November 24th, Impark will be accepting new, unused and unwrapped toys, and in exchange, the donor’s unpaid parking violation notice will be waived. A single toy donated will waive a single unpaid violation notice. Those with multiple unpaid violations will need to bring an equal number of toys to match the number of Impark parking violation notices they would like waived.
