Here's your chance to make the holidays special for less-fortunate children. Our annual Spark of Love Toy Drive is under way.

Residents can help ABC7's Garth Kemp (dressed as a giant elf) Stuff-A-Bus full of toys Friday at Ontario Mills. We'll be at the mall, located at One Mills Circle in Ontario, between 5 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Bring new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment for less fortunate children.

You can also drop off new toys at any CVS/pharmacy or fire station, or donate online.

Many local residents were up early to help Garth the Elf Stuff-A-Bus, and members of the Ontario Police Officers Association arrived with a SWAT truck of toys for the event.

For 18 years, ABC7 and firefighters from Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties, along with the Los Angeles City Fire Department, have joined forces to run the "Spark of Love Toy Drive". This campaign collects new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for the under served children in our communities.

Toys collected in the respective counties are distributed locally. Last year alone, "Spark of Love" collected over 500,000 toys within all five counties and we want to top that total this year, so please help the firefighter's ignite a spark of love in a child's heart.
