Annual Toy Drive
December 23, 2015

Accompanied by BLIA Los Angeles Subchapter Vice President Mr. and Mrs. Alex Wu, Venerable Directors Hui Hao and Mankuang, delivered more than 10 boxes full of toys donated with love by devotees and friends of the temple, in support of the Spark of Love Toy Drive. According to the fire department, more than $9,000,000 in toys have been donated and distributed to needy families over the past 20 years. This simple act of giving allows children of impoverished families to experience the joy and wonder of receiving a new toy. Toys collected during this year’s drive included a giant Santa Claus, Barbie, various stuffed animals, Transformers, Legos and much more. Each year, ABC 7 and the Southern California Fire Departments work together so that local children can have a happy holiday.
