Spark of Love Toy Drive 2017 - Donate today

Help us celebrate our 25th anniversary!
ABC7 and Southern California Firefighters are celebrating their 25th Anniversary of the Spark of Love Toy Drive. Over the past twenty five years, the Spark of Love Toy Drive has successfully collected more than ten 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.

We are proud to partner with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program. This nationwide program is celebrating 70 years of collecting and distributing toys. With firefighters and Marines standing side by side, we believe this will be the biggest Spark of Love yet.
