BOULDER, Colo. -- The parking services department at the University of Colorado is giving students and staff an early Christmas present.

People with outstanding parking tickets from Dec. 1 or earlier can get them waived by donating a minimum of five non-perishable food items this week only.

The food will be donated to Harvest of Hope Pantry , which provides healthy food to Boulder families and individuals in need of food assistance.

The school also ran this special program in April .
