Spark of Love

Toy Drive

Continuing the good work it has done for nearly 70 years, the Long Beach Fire Department will be collecting toys for deserving kids and families at the annual Christmas Tree Lighting, Nov. 28 in front of the Terrace Theater. As part of its annual Spark of Love toy drive, firefighters will be accepting new, unwrapped toys and gifts to be given to families and children in need. The program, which started in 1955 and accepts toys and gifts at all Long Beach firehouses, will once again culminate with its Code 3 Delivery Day when gifts will be delivered by Santa via his fire engine sleigh!
