The City of Savannah Parking Services announced today they are collecting canned food for America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia and will excuse parking citations in exchange for a donation.
Parking Services will excuse a maximum of five citations for overtime on a meter or in a time zone. A donation of five cans will excuse one citation.
An unlimited number of other citations, including street sweeping, fire hydrant or expired tag citations, will be excused. A donation of five cans will dismiss one penalty, but any late fees incurred must still be paid.
Red light citations will not be excused, and customers must have their license plate number with them.
Requested donations include peanut butter; canned meat and protein like tuna, chicken, salmon, ham, or ravioli; beef stew and soups; and canned vegetables like beans, peas, carrots and corn. Ramen noodles and expired items will not be accepted.
The food items will be accepted at the Bryan Street Garage, 100 E. Bryan St., from Dec. 9 through Dec. 13 from 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
