Holiday Toy Drive

Spark of Love Holiday Toy Drive

Help Light the Spark for the Holidays

Each year, the Fire Departments of Ventura County and ABC7 team up to bring the Spark of Love Toy Drive to Ventura County. As the nation’s largest community toy drive, Spark of Love helps at-need Ventura County children and teens enjoy a happier holiday season.

This holiday season, through generous donations from our communities, more than 30,000 local children and teens were gifted by the kindness of our neighbors, businesses and supporting sponsors.

We are no longer accepting donations and appreciate your spirit of giving.

If you have more gifts to give, please contact a receiving nonprofit directly:

The VCFD does not provide toys directly to individuals, and we encourage Ventura County residents to join forces with a participating organization in their community to request toys. Residents may also call 211 for information regarding toy drives and resources in their area.
