Holiday Toy Drive

Spark of Love Holiday Toy Drive

Help Light the Spark for the Holidays

Each year, the VCFD and ABC7 team up to bring the Spark of Love Toy Drive to Ventura County. As the nation’s largest community toy drive, Spark of Love helps at-need Ventura County children and teens enjoy a happier holiday season.

In 2022, VCFD firefighters working on behalf of Spark of Love collected more than 140,000 toys—supporting more than 25,000 children and over 75 different non-profit organizations.

How to Donate

  • Drop off new, unwrapped gifts and nonperishable food at your local Ventura County fire station, Ventura City Fire Headquarters, or participating business. Find a business near you here.
  • Donate online through the Ventura Fire Foundation here. All proceeds are tax deductible and will go towards buying toys locally and supporting children and teens. The Ventura Fire Foundation EIN is 47-1336798.

Donations to Spark of Love

Hosting A toy Drive?

All businesses and organizations participating in the Spark of Love Toy Drive can pick up donation boxes, posters, and collateral materials starting Nov. 1—and should drop off donations at Toy Central in Camarillo no later than Dec. 12 to ensure delivery to at-need children and teens in time for the holidays. After this date, all donations will be redirected to a receiving nonprofit.

Toy Requests

The VCFD does not provide toys directly to individuals, and we encourage Ventura County residents to join forces with a participating organization in their community to request toys. Residents may also call 211 for information regarding toy drives and resources in their area.
