© December’s Season of Celebrations & Sharing by Stuffing the Bus & Meeting Garth Kemp©
Today, I took 2 unwrapped toys to the “Spark of Love” Toy Drive sponsored by Channel 7. Garth Kemp, The Christmas Elf for Channel 7, ABC, was there to greet all the kids and adults. The Ontario Police Dept, Ontario Fire Dept, and of course Santa Clause was there!
I arrived at 11:30 AM and they already had 3 full buses and I put my presents on the 4th bus. There was a steady stream of cars pulling in to drop of gifts.
This was the bus I boarded to drop off my toys. This nice Fireman was here to help me. Very Cute!
Here is the bus driver; a cute green frog.
Here I am dropping off my two bags; 1 girl gift and 1 boy gift.
Here is one of the 3 buses already full.
Here is Garth Kemp, the Christmas Elf and he does a great job. The kids love him and all want a photo with him. He seems to be as popular as Santa today anyway.
This bus is one of the full ones. Amazing how many toys they will collect by the end of the day. By the end of the day they should have 8 full buses! WOW that will be a lot of toys for many girls and boys in the Inland Empire.
Toys collected in the respective counties are distributed locally. Last year alone, "Spark of Love" collected over 500,000 toys within all five counties and we want to top that total this year, so please help the firefighter's ignite a spark of love in a child's heart. You can also drop off at any Fire Dept. or any CVS Pharmacy. PLEASE GIVE..…for the kids!
