Spark of Love Toy Drive 2016 - Donate today

Celebrating 24 Years of Giving
ABC7 and Southern California firefighters are celebrating the 24th year of the Spark of Love Toy Drive. Over the past two decades, the Spark of Love Toy Drive has successfully collected more than nine and a half 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.

This year, we are proud to partner with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. This nationwide program has been collecting and distributing toys since 1947. With firefighters and Marines standing side by side, we believe this will be the biggest Spark of Love yet.
