The Victorino Noval Foundation Allies with The Children's Trust Fund this Holiday Season
In Los Angeles, nineteen years ago local social workers with "The Children's Trust Fund" recognizing the thousands of children and teens who experienced a Christmas morning with no gifts to open, reached into their pockets and began the holiday tradition known as the "Spark of Love" Toy Drive. For the past few years the Victorino Noval Foundation of Beverly Hills, realizing that Los Angeles is home to the largest population of foster children in the world, joined to support this worthy cause for less fortunate children.
In 2010 the Victorino Noval Foundation along with the Foundation's Keynote Speaker Mayor Jimmy Delshad of Beverly Hills joined "The Children's Trust Fund" of LA, the Los Angeles Fire Department, ABC Channel 7, along with many supporters to help to collect over 500,000 toys last year. This year the Noval Foundation seeks to surpass that number at the annual holiday gala on December 17, 2011.
Donations such as new unwrapped toys or sports equipment can also be dropped off at any local fire station. Firefighters from Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernadino and Ventura counties along with Los Angeles City firefighters join in collecting the gifts and assist to distribute them to less fortunate children in the local communities.
