  6. Buy a T-shirt: ABC7 has teamed up with local muralists to create exclusive Spark of Love-inspired t-shirts. ABC7 will donate 100% of its proceeds from Snow Commerce's sale of these t-shirts to support our 30th annual toy drive. Check them out at abc7.com/shop.

Toys will be sent to the Spark of Love Toy Central at Los Angeles City Fire, where they will be sanitized, sorted and distributed evenly to Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties. All proceeds will go to buying toys or sports equipment for the children and teens in need.

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 ten 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 14, 2022 on our digital platforms and on-air throughout the ABC7 newscasts. This year, we will host five "Stuff A Bus" Toy Collection Events starting Friday, December 2nd, where our viewers and participants can drop-off their new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment. The toy drive will run through December 24, 2022.
