ACC-Long Beach Donates 119 Toys for Firefighter's 'Spark of Love' Program
American Career College-Long Beach helped celebrate the holiday season by providing more than 100 toys to the Long Beach Fire Department's "Spark of Love" program.
"Our students, faculty and staff donated 119 toys to the fire station," ACC-Long Beach Student Resource Center manager Chandra Deveroux said. "This program provides toys for roughly 400 individual families and more than 20 different large community groups each year."
The "Spark of Love" program is a result of numerous volunteer hours by Long Beach firefighters, lifeguards, ambassadors and citizens. Toy drop-offs are made throughout December, culminating in the "Code 3 Delivery Day" where fire trucks and volunteer elves parade through the city with Santa in his fire engine sleigh delivering the abundance of toys.
