If you've got a parking fine in Olathe, you can swap part of it for school supplies.

Through Fri., Aug 16, bring in new school supplies with a receipt to the Olathe Municipal Court (1200 S Harrison St.) worth half of your parking fine amount on your Olathe parking ticket and receive full credit toward the fine.

Accepted school supplies include 17-18” backpacks, sticky notes, markers (primary colors), #2 pencils, 1 and 3-inch three-ring binders, scissors, spiral notebooks (single subject), five-tab three-ring index dividers, pocket folders without prongs, colored pencils (sets of 12-24), dry-erase markers, pencil bags or boxes, glue sticks, glue bottles, tissue boxes, highlighters, pens (blue, black, and red), hand sanitizer, loose-leaf paper (wide ruled), and bleach-free cleaning wipes.

Offer is not valid for commercial vehicle parking violations. Up to $50 of school supplies can be donated per person.
