Kawasaki Ignites ‘Spark of Love’ Toy Drive

For the seventh year, Kawasaki employees and marketing agencies team up to donate thousands of toys to local charity during Spark of Love

Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. employees and the company’s marketing agencies joined forces to raise funds and toy donations valuing nearly $15,000 for the 22nd Annual ABC7 and Southern California Firefighters Spark of Love Toy Drive.

All toys were donated LIVE this morning on ABC7 Los Angeles, with plenty of Kawasaki employees on hand to show support for the cause. Toys donated included Kawasaki branded ride-ons, bicycles, foot-to-floor toys and much, much more for children of all ages.

“All of the toys donated will go to children who live right here in Orange County where our company’s headquarters are based, so it makes sense that our employees would want to give back to their own community. This is the seventh year we’ve participated with Spark of Love and we look forward to many more years to come,” said Richard Beattie, Chief Operating Officer, Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A.

All toys donated during the ABC7 Spark of Love toy drive stay locally and are distributed to children in need by Southern California Fire Departments. To contribute to the Spark of Love toy drive, click here. For a video, visit ABC7 Los Angeles.
