The Spark of Love Toy Drive has officially come to an end. Thanks to your support, we received 35,821 toys for children in need this holiday season and over $40,000 in monetary donations. We partnered with 92 businesses and organizations within our jurisdiction to collect toys for 104 non-profits. We held three drive-by donation events and one stuff a bus event in conjunction with ABC7. Our events were held at The Market Place, Crossline Church, Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa and Santa Ana College. The stories, donations, and “thank you’s” have been heartfelt, encouraging, and have brought positivity to our communities.

Our efforts this year would not have been possible without the help from so many internal and external contacts and organizations. We are grateful for the assistance and support of our cities, community partners, ABC7, Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, The Market Place, Santa Ana College and Crossline Community Church. A special recognition to KWAVE for once again being the best partner and truly making this toy drive a success.

In an effort to improve on our toy drive each year, we have provided contact information if you would like to partner with us during the 2022 toy drive.
