Spark of Love 2021
This year, the Los Angeles County Fire Department, ABC7, Toys for Tots, and Southern California firefighters will celebrate the 29th year of the Spark of Love toy drive! We hope you can help us collect and distribute new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for underserved children and teens in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura, and Riverside counties.
Over the years, the Spark of Love toy drive has successfully collected and distributed nearly 10 million toys. Let’s make this year’s holiday season even brighter by delivering joy to those who need it most!
This year, you can donate to Spark of Love by:
- Dropping off your new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment at your local fire station. Subject to change anytime due to public health protocol.
- Texting to give by texting “SPARK” to 24365.
- Donating online at https://supportlafd.kindful.com/ to make a donation via credit card. All proceeds will go toward buying toys or sports equipment for the children.
- Bringing your new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment to one of the Stuff-A-Bus events:
