Spark of Love Toy Drive
The Fire Departments of Ventura County team up every year for the Spark of Love toy drive. For more than 28 years, your local firefighters have been collecting donations for distribution to local children in need for a happier holiday experience. In 2020, we saw record-breaking success.
Through generous donations from our communities, more than 15,000 local children and youth through over 30 non-profits were gifted by the kindness of our neighbors, businesses and supporting sponsors. This number more than doubled the reach of 6,000 children last year!
All donated toys and gift cards are collected and distributed through partner organizations and agencies to make the holidays brighter for local families experiencing financial difficulties this time of year. Monetary donations are put back in to our local businesses to purchase gifts or gift cards for our local youth and families. We are grateful for and impressed by your kindness and giving spirit.
