With your help, the men and women of LAFD aim to assure that no deserving child goes without a gift this holiday season.
- If you are seeking to DONATE TOYS to the Spark of Love Holiday Toy Drive, please click here.
- If you are an organization located in the City of Los Angeles that desires to RECEIVE TOYS this holiday season, please carefully read the information below...
NOTE: If you are an individual or family in personal need of holiday toys, we ask you to contact a non-profit child service organization in your community. These organizations can often be found through your local school, park, childcare agency or house of worship. Spark of Love works exclusively through these established child service organizations to assist you and other deserving families in your neighborhood.
For your City of Los Angeles based non-profit group to RECEIVE TOYS:
Spark of Love requires your organization to submit an email, and then to complete an on-line request form, ideally via a desktop computer.
The process starts with your simple email sent to LAFDtoys@gmail.com (no attachments please).
The initial email you send (with no attachments) will trigger an automatic reply. Please watch for and open that automatic email reply, as it includes a basic overview of the process -and- an exclusive link to your on-line toy request form.
On that special on-line toy request form, you will be asked for details about your group’s 501(c)3 Non-Profit Status; as well as the number, gender and ages of the children your group is seeking to help this holiday season.
When that special on-line toy request form is properly submitted, you will receive an email receipt, and a Spark of Love volunteer will contact you as soon as possible. Because the program relies on community generosity, we’re sadly unable to offer advance guarantees.
We thank you for your patience, as we handle an enormous amount of requests - - and wish you and yours the Happiest of Holidays!
