REDLANDS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/16/12 -- SkyTown (skytownredlands.com) at Splash Kingdom of Redlands is pleased to partner with the City of Redlands Fire Department in the 20th annual Spark of Love Toy Drive this holiday season. All toys and gifts donations delivered to Splash Kingdom at 1101 California Street, Redlands will go directly to children and teens served by Redlands Family Services.
For every unwrapped gift delivered to SkyTown between December 14th and 24th, SkyTown will offer a voucher for one free hour of jumping ($10-12 value) for the brand new SkyTown Trampoline Park which just opened in November. Toys can be dropped off to SkyTown collection boxes between Monday through Friday 2 p.m. and 9 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
"It's an honor to partner with the City of Redlands Fire Department to support two wonderful organizations this year -- the Boys and Girls Club of Redlands, whose members will receive SkyTown vouchers at their annual holiday party, as well as the Redlands Family Services with the Spark of Love Toy Drive," said Dave Simon, General manager and VP, Splash Kingdom. "It is very important to us at SkyTown and Splash Kingdom to partner with and support organizations and causes which are doing good for children and families in our community."
"Partnering with SkyTown and Splash Kingdom will help us hopefully meet our Spark of Love Toy Drive goal to collect more than 500,000 toys this year and really do our best to make the holidays brighter for local children," said Don Trujillo, City of Redlands Fire Department. "It's a win for all of us to work together for the community."
Visitors to Splash Kingdom's SkyTown trampoline park can experience the fun offered by the 12,000 square foot wall-to-wall trampoline arena with a foam pit known as "The Pit," Dodgeball, Slam Basketball and the Main Jumping Courts. SkyTown is brand new and the only trampoline park of its kind in the heart of the Inland Empire. Splash Kingdom also offers a family fun center with Go-Karts, Bumper Boats and Miniature Golf, as well as an arcade and group event facilities, making it a perfect holiday destination for family fun. Splash Kingdom waterpark will reopen in May 2013 with Season Passes available now at a discounted rate.
Over the past two decades, the Spark of Love Toy Drive has successfully collected more than seven million toys. The campaign collects new, unwrapped toys and sports equipment for underserved children and teens in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Orange, Ventura and Riverside counties. Toys collected in the respective counties are distributed locally. The goal this year is to exceed last year's collection of five hundred thousand toys.
The Spark of Love Toy Drive receives many toys for younger children, but receives much less for teens and infants. Some suggestions for teen items are MP3s, cameras, watches, jewelry, sunglasses, earplugs/earphones and cellphone cases. Boy recipients also enjoy skateboards, Razor scooters, basketballs, soccer balls and footballs. Girl recipients enjoy cross-body purses/bags, make-up brushes, blow dryers, flat irons and hot iron tools.

In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...
