Firefighters, Spark of Love, KFRG Radio and Angel Cars collect toys for Christmas

CAL FIRE, the ABC7 Firefighters Spark of Love campaign, the Angel Cars from Fueled by the Fallen and KFRG Radio combined their efforts to collect toys for less advantaged children in the cities of Highland and Yucaipa. The events were held on Saturday, December 17th.

The day began at 9:00 to 11:00 A.M. on the grounds of Immanuel Baptist Church in Highland, California. The donated toys were given to the Highland Police Department (San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department) who already had a toy program in place. It was an honor to collect toys for their program. CAL FIRE and the ABC7 Firefighters Spark of Love program are deeply appreciative of Immanuel Baptist Church's support of the community and the Police and Fire Departments.

In the afternoon, the focus switched to the City of Yucaipa where the Firefighters in Yucaipa joined with the ABC7 Firefighters Spark of Love program and the Angel Cars to collect toys for the less advantaged children in that community. AJ Bariles Chicago Pizza stepped up to provide the event location. Located on Yucaipa boulevard, there were visitors throughout the event which ran from 2:00 to 4:00 P.M.

Everyone who saw the Angel Cars in Highland and Yucaipa said that they were a magnificent disply and remembrance of the victims who were killed on the first day of the War on Terror, September 11, 2001. When you see these beautiful cars lined up in a row, it create a very solemn wall of remembrance and sacrifice.
