Fire departments of five different counties which included the Ventura, Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside counties participated in the drive.
"We're just participating along with L.A. County, L.A. City and other various organizations here," Lynch said.
KABC 7 also spearheaded the charity, Lynch said.
Distributing the toys involved giving the toys to various charitable foundations or handing the toys to those directly in need.
"We had firefighters that went out on Christmas Eve distributing toys. Most them [toys] went to various charities around Glendale but we did have 12 families that we distributed toys to as well," Lynch said.
"It's an outstanding program. It gives the fire department and the public an outstanding opportunity to give something back," he added.
L.A. County fire departments collected thousands of toys as well, said Sam Padilla, public information officer for L.A County Fire.
"We have 163 stations. We did pretty good, we are predominantly the major contributor when it comes to collecting toys for Spark of Love," he added.
L.A. County firefighters were also responsible for delivering the toys to various charities and events.
"[It's] a lot of work a lot of logistical planning," Padilla said.
"I love it because you see kids with no families no moms and dads get toys. I love it," he added.
