Spark of Love Toy Drive
Donations are now being collected at the LBCC Clubhouse for the Long Beach Fire Department’s Spark of Love annual toy drive. Please leave the an unwrapped gift in large “gift box” located in the LBCC Clubhouse. The toys are planned to be delivered to the LB Fire Station #14 in Belmont Shores at noon on December 23. Additional information on the LB Fire Department’s Spark of Love program may be found at http://sparkoflove.org/lbfd
In the early 1950’s, firefighter Murray Cohn, started collecting toys for needy kids in the area surrounding his fire station. This labor of love and generosity took root and grew to other surrounding stations, thus helping the cause and providing for even more kids. Upon Cohn’s retirement, Captain Jim Salisbury took over. Then Captain Bob Caldon took on the duty of “Head Elf” for over 20 years. The Toy Program has carried on the traditions from long ago, and continues to help hundreds of needy families each year. Firefighter Will Nash now oversees this monumental effort and helps Santa make a difference in the lives of Long Beach children every year.
