Here is a feel good story from my friend Tim Buche at the MIC: ‘Stuff-A-Bus’ toy drive with Garth the Elf
Each year the Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) and the Motorcycle Safety Foundation (MSF) coordinates the donation of the toys, bicycles, and cash to support the Spark of Love Toy Drive. They invite members to join staff to ride to the drop-off point and usually have motorcycles and their delivery vehicle(s) make the presentation to Garth Kemp the Elf of KABC-TV.
ABC7 and Southern California Firefighters are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Spark of Love Toy Drive. Over the past two decades, the Spark of Love Toy Drive has successfully collected more than seven million toys. The campaign collects new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for underserved children and teens in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties. Toys collected in the respective counties are distributed locally. Our goal is to exceed last years’ collection of 500,000 toys.
