Fire Stations Accepting "Spark of Love"
Toy Drive Donations
Firefighters are dedicated to preventing tragedy -- and that includes the tragedy of a child having no present to open this holiday season. So, again this year, the Moreno Valley Fire Department is sponsoring the Spark of Love Toy Drive and asking for your help to make sure every child has a happy holiday.
Please bring new, unwrapped toys or sports equipment to any MoVal fire station by December 14. Our firefighters and Santa will make sure the presents get to children who otherwise might have nothing -- and you may find that your generosity makes this holiday season your merriest ever!
