    ABC 7 Spark of Love with SDSA

    Wednesday, November 25th, 10:21 am - Thursday, December 24th

    The Spark of Love continues!
    Since 2009, the SDSA has participated in the ABC7 Spark of Love toy drive. The Community Outreach Committee joined with the event years ago and the SDSA continues to contribute to this worthwhile effort. This special community campaign collects new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for children and teens in need in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties.
    Sadly, the disastrous events of 2020, such as the pandemic and devastating wildfires, will make this year's needs and requests for toys higher than ever. However, with safety matters in mind, we will not be able to set up the decorated toy collection boxes at our Business Members’ locales.

    The solution? To ensure deserving kids receive some holiday joy, Spark of Love is going online, transitioning to an all-virtual effort by partnering with
    From now until December 24th 2020, you can go online and order items or make a donation to help bring Holiday Cheer to a child really needing some joy.
    The Set Decorators Society of America will continue to participate through the online drive.
    Knowing that our own members have suffered through the lack of work and business closures, we ask only to do what you can to help lighten the spirit.
    You have a choice of 3 different opportunities to participate, whether selecting a toy or simply making a donation. Thank you for helping us bring joy to children, especially this year!

    Toys will be sent to the Spark of Love Toy Central at Los Angeles City Fire, where they will be sanitized, sorted and distributed evenly to Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties. All proceeds will go to buying toys or sports equipment for the children and teens in need.
