Spark of Love Toy Drive 2022

Spark of Love 2022 logo

In 2022, the Fire Departments of Ventura County, ABC7 and multiple partner agencies and organizations teamed up to bring the 30th Annual Spark of Love Toy Drive to Ventura County.

This last holiday, the Fire Departments of Ventura County successfully supported more than 30,000 children and over 90 non-profits.

For the second year, we partnered with Food Share. Dedicated to leading the fight against hunger in Ventura County, Food Share provided boxes of food to over 6,000 families served thru this year’s toy drive.

Donations to Spark of Love

Hosting a Toy Drive?

All participating businesses can pick up donation boxes, posters, and collateral materials starting November 1st and should drop off donations to Toy Central in Camarillo no later than Monday, December 12th to ensure delivery to children and teens in time for the holidays. After this date, all donations will be redirected to a receiving nonprofit.

Toy Requests

To maintain safety and minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Firefighters of Ventura County will distribute toys to non-profit organizations in Ventura County this holiday season. We do not provide toys directly to individuals and encourage residents to join forces with a participating organization in their community to request toys.

Residents may also call 2-1-1 for information regarding toy drives and resources in their area.

Spark of Love children and toys

As the Spark of Love depends on the generosity of our community, the Firefighters of Ventura County cannot guarantee toy delivery or forecast event participation.

Together, we can keep the Spark of Love alive for children in Ventura County this holiday season!
