Pop-Tarts for Tickets


PopTarts

Bring any new, unopened boxes of Pop-Tarts or similar toaster pastries to the Transportation & Parking Services office in exchange for an unpaid parking citation dismissal! Donations of Pop-Tarts without a citation dismissal can be accepted at the TPS office or at any campus entry station.

Pop-Tarts benefit Food 2 Kids, a program of the Junior League of Lubbock. Food 2 Kids provides a sack of food Fridays during the school year with children identified as being potentially at high risk for suffering from hunger during the weekend. The sacks contain shelf-stable food items that do not require cooking or preparation or tools to open or consume. They include items like juice, fruit snacks, pop-top cans of spaghetti, cereal, and nut snacks. The favorite among the included foods, though, is Pop-Tarts®.

Pop-Tarts for Tickets began in 2016, and in its inaugural year, the promotion provided 6,804 Pop-Tarts to hungry elementary students and dismissed more than $1,500 worth of citations.

Dates and Location

2017 dates TBD. Program typically takes place at the start of the fall semester. Pop-Tarts for citation dismissal must be received during TPS office hours (weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.) during the promotion.

Requirements

Pop-Tarts must be at least the value of the unpaid citation. Good for one citation. Receipt for Pop-Tarts must be presented to redeem for dismissal. May not be used for violation numbers 3, 7, 16, 17, and 18.
