ABC7 & Firefighters Spark Of Love Toy Drive Fund
ABC7 and Southern California Firefighters are celebrating the 23rd year of the “Spark of Love Toy Drive.”
Over the past two decades, the “Spark of Love Toy Drive” has successfully collected more than 9 million toys for underserved children and teens.
The “Spark of Love Toy Drive” takes place in November and December every year. With love and support of donors and sponsors, kids across Southern California receive a new toy each holiday season.
Donations of any size help ABC7 and the Southland’s firefighters make a difference in a child’s life during the holidays. All net proceeds will go to buying toys or sports equipment for children.
Drop off a new, unwrapped toy or sports equipment at any local fire station. Firefighters from Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties along with Los Angeles City firefighters will collect the gifts and distribute them to underserved children in our local communities.
With help from “Spark of Love Toy Drive” donors, partners and sponsors, more than 500,000 toys were collected last year. This year, ABC7 hopes to double this number.
The “Spark of Love Toy Drive Fund” was created in 2004 at the California Community Foundation to provide toys or sports equipment for underserved children during the holiday season in Southern California.
