Residents came out early to help ABC7's Garth Kemp (dressed as a giant elf) Stuff-A-Bus full of toys at The Honda Center in Anaheim. All day people stopped by the Honda Center, located at 2695 East Katella Ave., dropping off new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment for less fortunate children.
Disney on Ice members were on hand early Friday with 50 Mickey plush toys for the event, and Disney on Ice tickets were being handed out to those who brought an unwrapped gift.
JAKKS Pacific shows up to every event each year with loads of toys, and this year was no different. The company donated 10,000 pieces of toys to the Anaheim Stuff-A-Bus event, bringing the total donated gifts this year up to 28,000.
If you would still like to help, you can also drop off new toys at any CVS/pharmacy or fire station, or donate online.

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.
