Teams up with ABC7 for the Spark of Love Toy Drive
RIVERSIDE, CA.- The City of Riverside Fire Department will join ABC7 and firefighters throughout Southern California in the “Spark of Love” Toy Drive from November 6 to December 24, 2019. The campaign collects any new, unwrapped toys, sports equipment, blankets and gift cards for underserved children and teens (0-16 yrs. old) in the 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 nine million toys.
HOW TO DONATE
You can bring any new, unwrapped toys, sports equipment, blankets and gift cards for underserved children and teens (0-16 yrs. old) to any one of our fourteen fire stations. There are also local businesses accepting unwrapped toys and sports equipment on behalf of the City of Riverside Fire Department Toy Drive, just look for the large “Spark of Love” boxes that are easily accessible.
With love and support of donors and sponsors, we have been able to help over 5, 000 kids each year receive a new toy during the holiday season. We hope to make that happen again this year with the help of your donations.
