60 Cydcor volunteers stood alongside the Fire Departments of Ventura County and ABC7 to prepare Christmas gifts and food for those in need.

AGOURA HILLS, Calif., Date, 2023 – Cydcor, a leader in outsourced sales and customer acquisition services, participated in a successful December 8 event alongside Spark of Love, the largest toy community initiative in the nation, volunteering over 120 hours.

The initiative has garnered Christmas gifts that will go out to more than 30,000 children and teens in the community who would have otherwise gone without.

With over 60 Cydcor volunteers working to ensure the two-hour event was a resounding success, the team joined the Fire Departments of Ventura County and ABC7 in celebrating the 31st year of the Spark of Love Toy Drive, where the collective worked together to sort, organize, and prepare gifts donated to Spark of Love in Camarillo.  

In addition to the toys and presents, Spark of Love also collected nonperishable food, with all donations going to families within Ventura County.

The event succeeded an on-air interview with Cydcor’s VP of Marketing and Communications, Gail Michalak, on ABC7 that took place in downtown Ventura during the Spark of Love Stuff A Sleigh event on December 1st. 

“Spark of Love has such a tremendous impact on this community where so many of our team members live, work, and play. It’s our 30th anniversary next year as a people helping people business and this is one way that we can really exemplify that right in our own backyard,” explained Michalak on Cydcor’s behalf.

Over the years, the Spark of Love Toy Drive has successfully collected and distributed close to 11 million toys to those in-need. During the 2022 event, Cydcor helped support the generous donations from members of the community, businesses and supporting sponsors that helped more than 33,000 local children and teens.

This year, Cydcor helped to sort and package gifts for more than 2,200 children!

“Giving is part of our culture,” says Cydcor CEO Vera Quinn. “I don’t think it would feel like the holiday season in our office if we didn’t participate in Spark of Love. We are thrilled to see how our community has come together this year.”

Cydcor, a leader in outsourced sales and customer acquisition services, helped keep the Spark of Love alive for children in Ventura County. Here’s how you can help in 2024 and beyond
