Spark of Love Toy Drive 2023

Nov 13, 2023 – Dec 24, 2023


Dear Pasadena Fire Department Supporter,

The Pasadena Fire Department has partnered with the ABC-7/Spark of Love Toy Drive since its inception 31 years ago. It is one of the highlights of serving the Pasadena community each year. We are thankful for the commitment to partnership that our Pasadena businesses AND individuals have shown over the many years! Because of your consistency, literally hundreds of children in Pasadena are able to receive lots of holiday cheer through your donations! We are confident that this year will be no different and we welcome new businesses to partner with us as well.

for Pasadena Non-Profits Only

  • 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

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