    Our special community campaign collects new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for children and teens in need in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties. Over the past two and a half decades, the Spark of Love Toy Drive has successfully collected more than nine million toys! Due to the effects of the pandemic and devastating wildfires, our community partners anticipate this year's requests for toys will reach higher than ever.

    The Spark of Love toy drive will begin on Monday, November 15, 2021 on our digital platforms and on-air throughout the ABC7 newscasts. This year, we will host five "Stuff A Bus" Toy Collection Drive Thru Events starting Friday, December 3rd, where our viewers and participants can drop-off their new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment. The toy drive will run through December 24, 2021.
