Temecula: Pechanga Fire Urges Everyone to Help Make the 25th Annual Spark of Love Toy Drive a Huge Success

Donated Toys can be Dropped Off at the Pechanga Resort & Casino Fire Station  

Pechanga Fire Department firefighters opened the doors to one of their shiny fire trucks to reveal it stuffed with more than $3,000 worth of toys last Friday. The toys were loaded onto the truck from Temecula and taken that morning to kick off ABC7’s Spark of Love toy drive in conjunction with Toys for Tots.

ABC7 and Southern California Firefighters are celebrating their 25th Anniversary of the Spark of Love Toy Drive. Over the past twenty five years, the Spark of Love Toy Drive has successfully collected more than ten million toys for underserved children and teens.

The “Spark of Love Toy Drive” takes place in November and December every year. With love and support of donors and sponsors, kids across Southern California receive a new toy each holiday season.

Donations of any size help ABC7 and the Southland’s firefighters make a difference in a child’s life during the holidays. All net proceeds will go to buying toys or sports equipment for children.

Drop off a new, unwrapped toy or sports equipment at any local fire station. Firefighters from Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura counties along with Los Angeles City firefighters will collect the gifts and distribute them to underserved children in our local communities.

The Pechanga Fire Station on the Pechanga Resort Casino grounds is one of the Spark of Love drop off locations. The Pechanga Fire Department is continuing to collect toys for the Spark of Love campaign through December 24th. Donors can drop off new and unwrapped toys any time, day or night.

Pechanga has donated toys to the Spark of Love Toy Drive for several years in a row, and also regularly donates funds and toys to the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots campaigns. Pechanga annually donates 1,000 turkeys to regional food banks and rescue missions for the holidays.
