SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Residents with outstanding parking violations helped Savannah City Hall bring in a whopping 51,152 during its annual holiday food drive.

Mayor Edna Jackson and other city officials donated the canned goods Friday to America’s Second Harvest. They said it was a record-setting donation for the city.

This year’s food drive got a boost when the city department that takes in parking fines opted to allow violators to pay their tickets by donating 10 cans of food. The city took in 18,295 cans to settle parking tickets.

Savannah’s city government launched its 10-day Christmas food drive in 2012.
