It would be easy enough to just pay your Cedar Rapids parking tickets and fines, but this Tuesday, June 5, you can do something to get those tickets "forgiven" while also giving back to those in need.

If you work and park in downtown Cedar Rapids, and have racked up any parking tickets recently, Park Cedar Rapids has a way out of those fines. They are hosting Citation Forgiveness Blood Drives this summer, and the first one is Tuesday, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Just look for the Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center donor bus outside the Park Cedar Rapids office at 349 4th Ave SE, For each blood donation made, up to $25 can be forgiven from Park Cedar Rapids fines.

If you miss tomorrow's blood drive, make an appointment to attend the next one on Saturday,  August 16 from 3-6 p.m.

For more information you may call Park Cedar Rapids at 319-365-7275 or visit their website.
