Toys for Tickets

The toys are to be brought to the Tuscaloosa Municipal Court, located at 2122 6th St downtown, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. each weekday.

2023 marks the fourth year that Tuscaloosa residents are able to pay back these fines with toy donations. The city is also known to do a similar initiative around the back-to-school season where school supplies are taken instead of payment for students in need within the city schools.

Those with questions are advised to call Tuscaloosa 311 at (205) 248-5311.
