Spark of Love Toy Drive 2022 - 30th Anniversary

Dear Pasadena Fire Department Supporter,

It’s that time of year again! It’s a VERY SPECIAL year because:

THE SPARK OF LOVE TOY DRIVE TURNS 3O!!

   MONDAY, NOVEMBER 14 – SATURDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2022

  • Donated over 100,000 toys to children throughout the Pasadena area
  • United with faithful business supporters who hold fun, creative events and contests with their employees and customers each year to participate and donate toys
  • Developed partnerships with new Pasadena businesses that express a desire to support the Toy Drive
  • Partnered with many Pasadena Non-profit organizations that distribute toys to the children of families in Pasadena that they care for
  • And most importantly, brought smiles and hope to children to let them know they are loved, cared about and not forgotten by their Pasadena community family!

The Pasadena Fire Department realizes that we ABSOLUTELY could not have achieved these goals without you. We humbly give you our thanks.

In honor of this celebratory 30th year, let’s make this donation effort huge!! We will be accepting NEW UNWRAPPED TOYS, SPORTS EQUIPMENT AND GIFT CARDS at each of our Pasadena Fire Stations.  Bring them for the little ones, but don’t forget our teen boys and girls (up to age 17) as well; that age group is always our greatest need.

To obtain boxes and posters for collecting toys at your business location, contact Veronica Petty at 626-744-4112 or via email at vpetty@cityofpasadena.net.

Thank you in advance for partnering with us for THE most successful Toy Drive year yet!

Sincerely,

 

Jason Hansen
EMS Battalion Chief

The Pasadena Fire Department works directly with many of its local non-profit agencies to provide toys to the children of the families  they work with.

In order to optimize the effectiveness of the program and to ensure the toys reach the children that need them:

  • We do not accept applications from individual families.  We suggest you speak your local non-profit organization to encourage them to apply to partner with the program.
  • We do not accept applications from “for profit” organizations.
  • We do not accept applications from non-profit agencies that we cannot verify.  As stated on the application, you MUST submit your FEDERAL tax ID Letter stating your non-profit status and number with your application. We will not accept any other type of documentation.
