5th grade student gives hope again for Christmas


Tyler Nguyen is keeping the true spirit of Christmas and his annual toy drive alive and well again this year as this awesome young Simpson Elementary student looks to help those in need this year with his own toy drive. With the assistance of his family and the Rialto Fire Department this young man is reaching out to those kids that may not receive anything this holiday season. It’s not only the kids he is helping but those parents that would love to buy toys for their kids but must choose food and bills as money is tight.

You can read the story we did on Tyler last year to learn how this all began for this awesome young man.


Here is what Rialto Fire had to say about Tyler on their Facebook Page:

“Meet Tyler. Tyler is a 5th grade student at Simpson Elementary in Rialto. After a successful toy drive of his own last year, Tyler and his family once again showed their generosity and spirit of giving. They hosted a Christmas Party/Toy Drive for Spark of Love. They have already filled two boxes and plan on collecting more before Christmas! They also treated Rialto Firefighters, family and friends to a wonderful homemade Christmas dinner. Thank you Tyler and family for your humble spirit and community service!”

Rialto Firefighters responded to a structure fire on the 200 block of N. Palm last night. Firefighters found heavy fire conditions on arrival and intense wind conditions. A 48 year old male was found unconscious in a rear bedroom on a primary search. Paramedics rushed him to ARMC where, sadly, he later passed away. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this tragedy. San Bernardino County Fire assisting
