spark of love
ABC7 & Southern California firefighters celebrate 22 years of giving. Over the past two decades, Spark of Love has successfully collected more than 8 million toys. The campaign collects new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for underserved children and teens in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties.

The campaign runs through Christmas Eve, and our goal is to exceed last years’ collection of 450,000 toys.

Stuff-A-Bus events go a long way in helping reach our goal. And the biggest elf on this side of the North Pole, Garth Kemp, will be at each Stuff-a-Bus event to meet and greet viewers and participants as he collects new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment for children and teens!

The next Stuff-a-Bus event is right here in the OC 

Friday, December 19, 2014 from 4:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Honda Center
2695 East Katella Ave.
(818) 863-7220

Ways to Give:
  • Bring your new, unwrapped toy or sports equipment to one of our four Stuff-A-Bus events in Cerritos, Ontario, Canoga Park or Anaheim.
  • Drop off your new, unwrapped toy or sports equipment at any local fire station.
