Ventura County Fire Department "Spark of Love" Holiday Toy Drive

  • Spark of Love Toy Drive

    Ventura County, CA - November 16, 2020

    We are a Spark of Love Partner! 2020 has been a tough year to say the least. It has been especially difficult for children dealing with school closures, limited resources, and family members struggling to make ends meet.

    Instead of hosting our Annual Client Holiday Party, Express Employment Professionals is partnering with the Ventura County Fire Department for the Spark of Love Holiday Toy Drive. All toys and donations collected will be distributed to local Non-Profits to bring joy to those in need.

    Currently, Spark of Love is thousands of toys behind pace due to increased demand. That's why Express Employment Professionals is stepping up to help.
