Enforcement Services delivers ‘Toys for Tags’ and food bank donations for those in need this holiday season

Strathcona County Enforcement Services helped make Christmas a bit brighter for local families this holiday season, through its Toys for Tags campaign and Cram A Cruiser initiative.

As part of the Toys for Tags campaign, Enforcement Services offered parking violators the option to purchase a $25 toy in lieu of the $57 fine payment during the month of November. Of the 268 parking violations issued, nearly half of the ticket recipients chose to replace their ticket fine value with a toy or gift card.

Strathcona County Enforcement Services staff delivered the mountain of toys to the Strathcona Christmas Bureau on December 6, 2019, where the toys will be wrapped and delivered to children and teens across Strathcona County.

In addition, on December 10, 2019, Save-On-Foods shoppers crammed 12 Enforcement Services’ cruisers full of 2,905 lbs of food and essentials, along with $560 in cash donations for local families in need. The event, co-hosted by Save-On-Foods and Enforcement Services (60 Broadway Boulevard, Sherwood Park) provides the Strathcona Food Bank and Strathcona Christmas Bureau with food and supports for local residents in need this Christmas season.


Set in the centre of Alberta’s energy and agricultural heartland, Strathcona County is a thriving, successful and vibrant community of over 98,000 residents. Strathcona County is made up of the urban area of Sherwood Park and a large adjacent rural area of farms, acreages and smaller hamlets.

With a focus on economic, governance, social, cultural and environmental sustainability, Strathcona County is committed to balancing the unique needs of its diverse community.
