Spark of Love delivers toys to Long Beach families

December 24, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
There was a very special Christmas Eve for some families in Long Beach. Firefighters, police and volunteers were out delivering toys from the Spark of Love Toy Drive.

Several families were selected for special boxes of toys due to unique hardships they've endured over the past year.

For some children, those toys will be all they get this Christmas.

"Words can't explain, I just want to say thank you to everybody," said Kimberly Folse, one of the recipients. "We didn't have anything and I just prayed for just a little bit of love and I got so much, I don't know what to do now."

Nine Long Beach families were selected this year for Saturday's special toy delivery.
