SPARK OF LOVE TOY DRIVE

ABC7 and Southern California Firefighters are celebrating the 21st Annual Spark of Love Toy Drive. Over the past two decades, the Spark of Love Toy Drive has successfully collected more than 7 million toys. The campaign collects new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for underserved children and teens in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties. Toys collected in the respective counties are distributed locally.
