The Fire Departments of Ventura County, ABC7, and Toys for Tots are once again teaming up to bring the 29thAnnual Spark of Love Toy Drive to Ventura County.
Spark of Love is only possible due to the on-going generosity of thousands of people in our communities across the region.
This year we are partnering with Food Share. Dedicated to leading the fight against hunger in Ventura County, Food Share will be providing boxes of food to families served thru this year’s toy drive.
Now through Christmas Eve, community members and businesses throughout Ventura County can bring a new, unwrapped toys, sports equipment toys and non-perishable food to any participating location to be donated to local children and teens. All donations collected stay within our community.
How to Donate
Drop off new, unwrapped gifts and nonperishable food at your local fire station (subject to change anytime due to public health protocol) or participating business. Find a business near you here: vcfd.org/sparkoflovedropoff
Donate online through the Ventura County Professional Firefighters Association (VCPFA):
All proceeds are tax deductible and will go towards buying toys locally and supporting children and teens.
Hosting a Toy Drive?
- Local businesses can request a Spark of Love collection box for their location or event. If you wish to host a drive, please contact Crystal Stratton at Crystal.Stratton@ventura.org to request a collection box.
To maintain safety and minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Firefighters of Ventura County will distribute toys to non-profit organizations in Ventura County this holiday season. We do not provide toys directly to individuals and encourage residents to join forces with a participating organization in their community to request toys.
Residents may also call 2-1-1 for information regarding toy drives and resources in their area.
Because Spark of Love depends on the generosity of our community, the Firefighters of Ventura County cannot guarantee toy delivery or forecast event participation.
