‘Tis the season folks, and we’re really happy to share that employees of Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. (as well as the company’s marketing agencies) joined together to raise funds drum up toy donations totaling nearly $15,000 for the 22nd Annual ABC7 and Southern California Firefighters’ “Spark of Love” Toy Drive.
All of the toys were donated live on ABC7 Los Angeles, with a crowd of Kawasaki employees on site to support the cause. Of course, we’re not at all surprised that a few Kawasaki-branded ride-ons, bicycles, foot-to-floor toys and much, much more for children of all ages made it into the mix either. ‘Cause c’mon, kids want to be part of Team Green too.
PowerSports Business quoted Richard Beattie, Chief Operating Officer, Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A., stating, “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.”
All of the toys donated during the ABC7 Spark of Love toy drive are distributed to local children in need who are in the area by Southern California Fire Departments.
