Interactive video lesson plan for: MIT gives back to the community

Activity overview:

Toys-for-Tickets and Fill-a-Cruiser, are just two of the ways MIT gives back to the community each year.

Toys-for-Tickets is a program that allows people to bring in a toy of equal value or more of their parking violation, and it will be forgiven. You can also get ID's and fingerprints done at this time for an exchange of a gift. Just don't forget your receipt!

Fill-a-Cruiser takes place one day on campus at two different locations. Anyone can come down and donate clothes, blankets, socks, hats, sheets or even cash! At the end of the day everything is stuffed into a MIT Police cruiser and driven down to the Salvation Army in Central Square, Cambridge.
