Edmond Touch-A-Truck Celebrates Successful Event

Edmond Electric hosted the Edmond Touch-A-Truck on Saturday, June 1 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the UCO parking lot off 2nd Street.

Touch-A-Truck is a fundraising event that provides kids of all ages with the opportunity to experience life-size vehicles and interact with community support leaders like linemen, police officers, firemen, construction workers and many more. Families had the opportunity for a hands-on exploration of many vehicles such as Edmond’s own fire trucks and police cars, an Edmond Electric bucket truck, cement trucks and even a solid waste truck. 

Admission for the Touch-A-Truck event is a suggested $2 donation with the proceeds going to the Edmond Hope Center to benefit local residents in need. At this year’s event, $4,200 was raised through donations.

Edmond Electric would like to thank all the volunteers that helped this event be a success. These organizations include Dolese Brothers, Co., Kona Ice, Edmond Emergency Management, Edmond Fire Department, Citylink Edmond, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, Edmond Police Department, Van Eaton Ready Mix, Red Dirt Jeeps, KOCO TV – Michael Armstrong, UCO Boathouse, Edmond Parks & Recreation, EMSA, Arrow Wrecker Service, T-Mobile, Stephens Truck Center, United Petroleum Transports, Fluff-n-Stuff, Northcare and Scoops Ice Cream.  Because of these participants this event was a success, we greatly appreciate it.
