The Laguna Beach Fire Department in conjunction with all other local fire agencies will be taking part in the annual Spark of Love Toy Drive.
The Spark of Love campaign began in 1993 as a partnership between ABC7 and Firefighters throughout the five-county areas of Orange, Riverside, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Ventura.
Although there are many worthwhile toy drives taking place this holiday season, the Spark of Love is the only one created and operated by Firefighters!
Working together as the Orange County Toy Collaborative, these agencies collect and distribute approximately 300,000 toys annually to disadvantaged children who otherwise would not be receiving gifts this holiday season.
This year marks the 22nd anniversary of the Firefighters’ Spark of Love campaign, which will run from through December 24 2015.
The City of Laguna Beach Fire Department has been involved since the program’s inception and each station will serve as drop-off sites for new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment.
